If you’re not sampling the XX, you better be covering them. Gorillaz are the latest to jump on the bandwagon with extraordinary results. Absolutely amazing track.

Seattle based hip-hop duo Blue Scholars are back with a new track entitled Lumiere. Notice the XX sample in the background – seems everyone is on that tip these days.

The most produced video from mellow masters The xx to date. They stay chill, of course, but the dancers get it going. Another amazing track from a nearly perfect album.

The xx are one of the most buzzed-about bands working today, rocking a Young Marble Giants-style minimal indie sound that has us swooning. Check out the new video for “VCR”.

This band’s getting a lot of play in the hipsterverse lately, and I wanted to find out what the big deal about The XX really was. Hey: it’s because they’re actually pretty freaking good.
