NEW NO LONGER
Since the release of his band’s eponymous debut, The xx production wiz Jamie xx has kept himself busy, first crafting the Far Nearer instrumental EP, then reworking Gil Scott-Heron’s entire I’m New Here into the We’re New Here remix album. The latter effort landed him a production credit on “Take Care,” the Drake/Rihanna collaboration that grabbed a hook and a piano riff from one of the Scott-Heron tracks. Meanwhile, The xx’s just-released “Angels” might be the most casually devastating song of the year. Catch them on Thursday at Terminal 5, then dance to Jamie’s solo DJ gigs when he plays P.S.1’s Warm Up party this afternoon and (le) poisson rouge tonight, with John Talabot and JDH & Dave P.
