The xx

"They look like the goth kids from South Park!" wrote one astute YouTube commentator on the video for "Crystalized." While it's true that the semi-tragic haircuts and oral care of South London four piece the xx leave something to be desired, the band's coolly distant r&b songs sound like ultra-suede. Look out tonight for a smoldering cover of Aaliyah's "Hot Like Fire" and the Echo and the Bunnymen-ish "Blood Red Moon." See 'em now so you can say you saw them then. With Javelin and Lia Ices.
