The xx arrive in Bloomington today with a whole new sound of love, loss and longing.  Gingerly dodging the storm cloud of hype hysteria that plagues seemingly every other new buzz act of the moment, The XX are edging into our hearts. Here’s the video for the intro song “VCR”. My friend Todd Robinson says this was his favorite record of 2009 – for the rest of that means its still cool to be lovin’ this in 2010. The intro, into VCR, evokes a quitely emphatic tower-block cavalcade reminiscent of post-rock take on Mike Skinner’s first work, punctured before long by twinkling bedroom guitar whispers born from a monochrome palette and what the album’s producer terms “A belief that all space doesn’t need to be filled.” Sip this slowly on ice.
