First off, Jools Holland’s production and lights know what they are DOING.  What a gorgeous recording.

Secondly, The XX goes good with: a glass of wine, moments when you feel psuedo-sinister.   If you are a fan of Cocteau Twins or The Cure’s quieter stuff, or shoe-gazey music in general, you will probably eat The XX right up.  They combine hushed vocals, reverb-y drumbeats, and guitar/bass effects that sound like a quiet moonlit adventure?  See, I’m not very good at describing things, but that’s the point of music.  As much as I lack in describing the music, it really does the job for itself.
