The XX

two-step // mallet percussion

The history of this song is pretty storied, but I’m already plenty distracted by the production of this take on “You’ve Got The Love” by The XX. We open with arpeggiated harp lines. A basic two-step beat trots out, chased by the two-step signature sub-bass, descending in hertz. The XX give us tag-team male & female vocals, matching in harmony just when… a float of mallets tickling vibraphones come flirting past your ears. The bass and vocals meet up with the percussion, stimulating an aural foreplay. I’ll let you take it from here.

Vibraphones, harps, ‘n deep bass on the dance floor.

    pretty sure the xx made a cover of the original song from the 70s or something and then florence made a cover of it.
    just sayin….

  8. Sunset Sessions :

    “there is an event called Sunset Sessions Rock! in June in San Diego. It gives indie alternative bands a chance to play in front of big radio stations from across the county, music supervisors from film, tv + ads, video game programmers, managers and record labels. It costs some dough to play (like 2-8k), and you have to actually be good enough to get picked, but it’s a once in a lifetime chance to get in front of all these music industry people that can completely launch a bands career. February’s SS had 45 bands play to 800 music biz people. Check out info at to see how to get your band in.”
