As much as I hate to boot Tim Minchin off of my blog so quickly, into the barren wastelands of the archives, I just have to show you as much as possible of this fantastic new band called The xx. I admit, I did discover them by reading a pitchfork review, which is about as cliche as they get, but that aside, I don't care how I found them they're simply wonderful. If clicking a play button is too much hassle, they're quiet, refined, vaguely radiohead-esque (oh pitchfork, what have you done to me?) electro/indie/pop, and they're well worth your time.
Download, torrent, buy, spotify their album, pick your poison. But by hook or by crook, you need to listen to this album (It's titled xx). If you're too impatient to listen to 40 minutes of quiet, relaxing shoegaze-pop, check out Crystalised, VCR, and Night Time. (These three mini-youtube links are those three in that order)
