One of our favorite new bands to surface this year, The xx are building up quite the following and it's just the beginning. Expect their debut album (purchase from iTunes) to show up on numerous best-of-lists at the end of 2009, including ours. Here's an unofficial video of The xx's "Heart Skipped A Beat" set to some beautiful scenery. (via)
The xx is currently playing a bunch of shows at CMJ this week and will be performing throughout North America from November into the first week of December. That includes a stop here in Austin at The Mohawk opening up for Friendly Fires on Thursday, Nov. 19th. Tickets ($10) are already on sale, purchase them here.
