I was doing some DIY with my housemate Chris the other week, and I popped on the XX album. We were both talking about those albums that you listened to non-stop for a period of time, and when you listen to them again you get that sentimental feeling, you know? The power of music. Along with Burial "Untrue" and a select few more, the first XX record is definitely one for me, and always will be. I was certain that there would never be another XX record, but I was proved wrong when this little ditty that surfaced on Christmas Day.
Haters are gon' hate, but we'll soon find out what it will be like. Though it wont sound anything like this, it's just nice to hear some new material again.
