the xx

Screen Shot 2014-02-05 at 6.03.03 AMDon’t fret, this isn’t a dirty post; I’m short an x. I am actually doing a rare thing here: sharing a band on the blog. I don’t often do this, since music is often of such personal taste, it’s hard to be 100% confident that people will also enjoy it. The XX has been around since 2009 so they may be old news to some, but just the other night was my first listen to their self-titled album. Unexpectedly, this record helped me unearth some ideas that have been trapped inside my brain for far too long. With thoughts finally surfaced, and fully recorded, I now have 3 new pages in the sketchbook! They are mostly a flurry of lists and quick sketches, but I have a feeling that they may very well dictate the new direction of my work this year. Amazing how good music can help you accomplish something quickly, even if it’s as simple of a task as cleaning the kitchen!Follow my blog with Bloglovin

    I love the XX! Breathy, moody music. Shakira does a really good cover of one of their songs, ‘Islands’. Google it. If you like the XX check out Young Galaxy, on a similar plane of music.
