The XX – Coexist

‘Coexist’, the second album from The XX, was placed at number 30 in This Is Fake DIY’s album of the year chart. Here’s what I had to say about it:

Following their Mercury Prize gaining debut – The xx returned earlier this year, with their sophomore effort ‘Coexist’. In the wake of the release, the South-London cohorts sporadically dropped a handful of tracks, making their way onto the Internet and into the ears of many. Tracks such as the critically acclaimed album opener ‘Angels’ and the remix-friendly ‘Swept Away’. Although the album hasn’t witnessed a considerable departure in sound, it’s comforting to know that the band’s hazy bouts of melancholia are still ever present, as they take baby steps towards creating a game-changing dance record.
