The xx

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)

We're no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do I
A full commitment's what Im thinking of
You wouldn't get this from any other guy

I just wanna tell you how Im feeling
Gotta make you understand

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

We've know each other for so long
Your hearts been aching
But you're too shy to say it
Inside we both know whats been going on
We know the game and were gonna play it

And if you ask me how Im feeling
Don't tell me you're too blind to see

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Give you up. give you up
Never gonna give
Never gonna give, give you up
Never gonna give
Never gonna give, give you up

We've know each other for so long
Your hearts been aching
But you're too shy to say it
Inside we both know whats been going on
We know the game and were gonna play it

And if you ask me how Im feeling
Don't tell me you're too blind to see

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

You do realize that you've unwillingly spelled "XXX" with your video thumbnails, right? Tsk tsk tsk, confusing fellow Newgrounders with the prospect of free porn, you little evil thing.

Now this music is relaxing, and I'm not even a huge fan of this genre. But I COULD, consider owning this.
