Finally, a parapsychology reference I can get on board with. Despite their name, you don't need to appeal to pseudoscience to explain why ESP are making headway: the Los Angeles-based three-piece make infectiously good songs that have an uncanny ability to worm their way into the dark recesses of your mind. That's quite an impressive feat, given that their aesthetic might tactfully be described as fairly psychedelic. They're made up of brother and sister Aska and Seiya Matsumiya, who between them handle vocals and keyboards, and Bobby Evans, who bangs the drums; [...]
While we still soak in The xx 's Coexist , we're starting to see how the new material stands up in a live stetting. So far, the minimalist vibe works in their favor, and these live versions sound almost exactly like the album. Watch the band take on "Reunion" and "Sunset" during their stop at KCRW. THE 10 MOST QUOTABLE LYRICS FROM THE XX'S COEXIST

This past weekend saw one of the UK's last festivals of Summer take place on the Isle of Wight with some great acts performing. The xx were one of those bands there ahead of Coexist' s release today, and from the reviews I've read it seems like they put on a great show. Up above you can enjoy them performing "Angels" to the huge crowd. UK readers can pick up a copy of Coexist over here .
When The xx hit the studio to make an album, they kept the live show in mind. Never wanting to create something that they can't replicate on stage, they keep things strikingly simple. It paid off. Check out this beautiful performance of "Angels" from Bestival on the Isle of Wight, England.

Hasta Romy y Oli de The xx han mostrado su gusto por lo que está haciendo. Aquí está el video de su sencillo debut, "Breaking" que saldrá el próximo 24 de septiembre en Black Butter Records. Enjoy.
Já algum dia se perguntaram o que andam a ouvir as vossas bandas favoritas? Eu pessoalmente gosto de saber, como se inspiram, o que admiram, os clássicos que mantêm sempre por perto ou a banda sonora para as rotinas diárias. Os The xx revelaram algumas das suas canções favoritas, desde temas actuais de Jai Paul ou 2:54, como aos Everything But the Girl (uma das grandes influências do trio) a uns inusitados The Streets, numa playlist que compilaram para o itunes e que pode ser adquirida aqui . O novo álbum dos britânicos, Coexist, [...]
The xx's second album Coexist is only a few weeks away, which means it's about time they drip-fed us another little slice of it. You know, incase we weren't already excited enough. We've already heard 'Chained', and 'Angels', and 'Sunset' isn't a huge departure from either of those tracks or the generally accepted xx template either. But rarely does a band seem so sure of what it is their songs should sound like without ever dropping the standard below jaw dropping. Coexist is shaping up to be one of the albums [...]
One of the breakthrough bands of the year, 2:54 (sisters Hannah and Colette Thurlow ), have been announced as support for The xx on their highly-anticipated US tour in October. They play seven dates together, starting in LA and winding up in Milwaukee, following the release of their self-titled debut album in May on Fat Possum, and after also being personally invited by The xx to support them on their European comeback tour in September. It's been an amazing year for 2:54 so [...]

Cuántas veces habremos escuchado eso de que lo mejor acaba siendo lo más simple. No sé si eso es lo que habrán pensando The xx con su nuevo vídeo, "Angels" , pero, desde luego, han conseguido algo muy bonito con unas cuantas cámaras y, lo más importante, las ganas de hacer algo sin pensar. No siempre es bueno actuar por impulsos, sobre todo si acabas perjudicando a alguien, pero The xx, que están de gira por Japón, quedaron tan prendidos de Tokyo que decidieron grabar en [...]

Taking a Lost In Translation approach, the xx perform Coexist opener "Angels" live in a hotel room in Tokyo. While official music videos tend to be the orthodox approach to promotion of albums, this live performance seems to be the only way to do this lonely piece any justice. If you happened to have given the rest of the new album or prior leaks a spin, you will notice that the lyrical content revolves heavily around love in a rather deep and depressing manner. Not exactly the way many people might want to end [...]
