The xx – Personal, minimal, romantic, sexy

This band is not for everyone.  Maybe the opposite of a “wall of sound”, their music is simple, even minimalist.  Their impact has been huge.  They convey a kind of romantic feel no one else has been able to duplicate.  I once saw a review which said that while there are lots of songs about things leading up to sex, the xx songs seem to take place afterwards.  There is a depth of feeling here that, if you hook into, can grab you my the solar plexus.  It’s like being pulled into a connection between the two singers that you can’t escape.  When I was lucky enough to see them live (see bad photo above) it was clear they have an adoring audience who know all the words, and just want more and more.
