The xx is another one of those bands that we’ve known about for a long time but never truly listened to until recently. Their mellow, foot tapping beats, light whispery lyrics, and soothing tandem sing-alongs put them in a league all their own. It’s hard not to tap along with each and every track they lay upon us. After the brewing success of The xx 2009 album, logically named XX, Coexist is the follow up we have been anxiously waiting. So get out your lighters and hold them high as this three-piece band from London releases another album for our listening pleasure. Be sure to check out the opener “Angles”, the impressionable track “Missing”, and the closer “Our Song.”
