Two degress of loveliness released today upon the world // The XX & SMD

Firstly the self-titled release of The XX, via Young Turks. They had been mentioned before because of the first single Crystalised, so besides the album being released what happened between then and now? Well, the video below for the second single Basic Space happened which is so so sweet that it makes you want to lick the screen. No worries, I won't tell anyone, it's perfectly normal. Also read some not so favourable reviews, but seriously, I don't give a fuck. Ordered.

Lastly, Simian Mobile Disco's Temporary Pleasure. The first single, Audacity of Huge, didn't actually caught my attention to be honest. What made me raise an eyebrow and think "this might actually be good" was just realizing the amount of star-power involved in the album. The good kind such as Beth Ditto from Gossip, Chris Keating from Yeasayer, Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip and the double cute combo from NYC, Telepathe. MOAR singles neeeded. And remixes as well. Thank you and come back always.
