I’ve been listening to The XX for a couple of weeks now, since their second album ‘Coexist’ dropped. The album led me back to their self titled debut – ‘The XX’ and this gem – Infinity.
The XX – Infinity
Every time I listen to it, I get a throwback to Chris Isaak’s 1989 slow burner ‘Wicked Game.’ While Infinity is a decidely less energetic affair, it has the same air of melancholy and resignation, all the more so because of it’s stripped down nature. A very similar Dobro slide is also found on both releases.
