The xx: Music Mix recommends

Posted on

The increasingly hyped London quartet the xx are sending their self-titled U.K. debut our way October 6. They have a nice minimal pop thing going on, but the vocals are surprisingly soulful – almost like quiet-storm Top-40.

Though they’re not even legal drinking age yet, they sound like they’ve arrived fully developed; the only teen thing about the co-ed foursome, as far as I can tell, is that all their lyrics are about sex.

What you do think? Perfect late-night driving music, or what?
