In Search of The XX


I first heard XX last year, care of my commercial nixing satellite radio.  I wasn't so sure.  Crystalised struck me at first as far too breathy.  Actually, I found it a bit nauseating...but then I heard it again and found myself turning it up, way up.  The beat was intoxicating. What wasn't so intoxicating?  Not being able to find their CD locally or for that matter, at all.  I checked all my "normal" go-to music places and nada.  I gave up until just recently when I heard another & then yet ANOTHER song by the group.  What can I say, I guess I just dig their quirky 19 year old-esque style.
