The xx – Angels

The xx - Coexist

This is one of my favorite songs of the year. It’s simple yet painfully intricate. It almost reminds me of Peter and Kerry’s “Knees” which we featured on last year’s Mr. Blue Sky. The line that’s repeated throughout this song (“Being as in love with you as I am”) just speaks to the angsty teen within me.

The xx will be releasing their sophomore effort Coexist on September 11. Check out the tracklist below.

  1. Angels
  2. Chained
  3. Fiction
  4. Try
  5. Reunion
  6. Sunset
  7. Missing
  8. Tides
  9. Unfold
  10. Swept Away
  11. Our Song

Hoodie Allen – NY Is Killing Me (Prod. Jamie XX)

Trippy production by Jamie XX, heavy rapping from Hoodie Allen in this remix of Gil Scott-Heron’s “New York Is Killing Me”. It seems Hoodie’s dipping his toes in the singing waters. I’m not sure I’m feeling this one too much. I appreciate that Hoodie is flexing his muscles a bit and showing that he’s more than just an indie-pop sampling white rapper, but I think this one was a bit too abrupt for his fanbase. We’ll see how people react to it. I’m just hoping Hoodie doesn’t wander into Posner land with his singing. My opinion? Stick to the rapping, homie.

Love ya mean it!

Love, Lydia
