Much ado about the xx?

For this new aspect of the blog, i’ll just go over things that I hear or trends that are on the radar. I’ll evaluate them and give my opinion, because some of this stuff out there will have you instantly hooked, or scratching your head like, “Reallly? This is ish is popular?”

Claim: Up and coming South London band The xx is the next “it” group

Verdict: Maybe not the second coming, but much promise… They have a pretty distinct sound, which is always a plus. Their music could technically be placed in a genre, but it crosses some boundaries [another plus].  I get the hints of sca and the obvious new wave vibe too.  They a few songs from their myspace sound like it would totally be a late 00’s version of John Hughes movie fodder [gotta love their aaliyah cover]. I basically just really hate bands that sound like everyone else. I also like the male female leads. I like the interplay they have on crystalised. Their sleepy sound is kind of refreshing when everyone else is screaming they stay at a steady rumble. Which has worked thus far to get them noticed.
