I am a huge fan of The XX , from August 2009 via their appearances and huge raves from Pitchfork and Stereogum . This three-piece band from Wandsworth, UK are an eclectic mix of new-wavers, art-studio geeks, dream poppers, and raw teen musicians. Their sound has already captured many ears and they seem to be this year's Moby - selling songs to commercialize and spread their electro-indie sound.
download album+art from: waitwhatmusic | mediafire | zshare | megaupload update (4/6/10): “ Dear Mitch, if you're holding this letter, you already know” unfortunately, the powers that be have been, and, perhaps unsurprisingly (but disappointingly), the people behind the hip-hop half of this project have demanded that the album download be removed. a small part of me hoped that the music industry would have seen the value in spreading a piece of art that melded two disparate performers’ work together, thereby introducing each artist to a new audience, but they must’ve been too busy suing 9-year-olds downloading mp3s to have figured that one out. the notion that this project would hurt the sales of either artist is, in my opinion, absurd. but my opinion doesn’t have lobbyists and legislation, and thus, is frankly not worth much.
