The xx

There's a lot of hype about the British band The xx. Their debut album (simply titled 'xx') has been critically acclaimed. Their music has been in a variety of TV shows like Gossip Girl, Lie To Me and Grey's Anatomy.

A friend recently gave me their CD with high recommendations and for some reason I haven't been able to get into them the way my friend expected me to. Mostly, I feel this is because The xx is a band that I need to be in a certain mood and environment to fully appreciate. Somehow sitting in a car in the middle of rush hour traffic (because, unfortunately I spend a good chunk of my music listening time in this state) doesn't lend itself well to this band.

But I do enjoy this video.
