The xx-‘Chained’


Now this I really like. I wasn’t sure about the first new xx track, but I love the second one released ‘Chained’. It feels like a real progression. Its a similar sound that we’re familiar with, but it is more refined and tight. The vocals are smooth. But of course its Jamie xx’s beats always do it for me. What an incredible talent this guy is.

Album of the Week: M83 – Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming

 A new feature I plan to include weekly will be the album of the week. I know it’s cliched, but it’s hopefully gonna be good! This week the album of the week is M83’s sixth album ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’. The double album features 22 tracks of searing Synth Pop. The opening track Intro’ featuring Zola Jesus is an epic thrill ride and ‘Steve McQueen’ is monumental. Check out the official video for ‘Midnight City’ Below:
