London band The xx makes hazy, woozy, moody pop music that toggles between the likes of Young Marble Giants and Hot Chip. Intimate and homey, the group’s sound plays close-miked vocals against furtive hooks made with guitars, keyboards, and seemingly whatever happens to be lying around. The xx’s self-titled 2009 debut garnered overwhelmingly good reviews, ended up on numerous best-of-the-year lists and won the Mercury Music Prize —a surprisingly loud fuss made over such a quiet whisper of a band. A new album, Coexist, is scheduled for a September 11 release.
The xx will make its way to Milwaukee for a show at the Pabst Theater Oct. 21. General admissions tickets are $27, and include a digital download of Coexist. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 20 at noon.
