UPDATE – Young Turks is labeling this as a deluxe edition, which may not be limited. Â We’ve contacted them about pressing numbers and will report back when we’ve got a response.
In 2009, The XX reshaped pop music. Â Fact. Â Their sparse, lusty self-titled debut became an immediate classic, affecting the musical landscape from Blur to Shakira.Â Similar to Young Marble Giants, The XX proved yet againÂ thatÂ “a little goes a long way”. Â Their sophomore release Coexist, while a bit more polished, followed the same path of melancholy minimalism, and for the next 3 years…it’s been fairly quiet from the band.
Jamie XX is here to appeaseÂ your hunger and to elongate your tranquility. Â His recent single Gosh displayed his knack for making mountains out of the micro, coating a basic drum loop with glimmering drones and synth swoons. Â It’s been on repeat in my house since it dropped.
If $37 seems a bit steep, there’s a regular version for you…but trust me, the limited version won’t be around for long.
