the xx – Islands (Live)

a lot of people are just now catching up and crushing on this band. this is the first song of theirs i fell in love with. i fell asleep to their debut record Xx every night for a couple of weeks. can’t say enough about how good that cd is. this video is nice because it can introduce newcomers to the beautiful simplicity of their musical arrangements and maybe reveal to people who were already fans that the girl looks like kelly osbourne and the guy voice belongs to the bass player who resembles Eminem back when he dressed like this

if you’d like, you could see the XX live with me at IU’s Buskirk Chumley on April 6th, with alphabet band buddies the JJ

managed to find a pre-crackhead dmx jpeg. swedish group the xx is making a splash here finally, you might recognize this beat more as Mike Posner’s “One Foot Out the Door” but it’s the intro to their self-titled debut record – an AWESOME cd i’ll probably post material from some other time

this blend by the Hood Internet
