Last night, Jamie Smith of The xx premiered the first single from his currently-untitled project on X-Posure with John Kennedy. The steel-drum heavy single, “Far Nearer,” is due out on Numbers in the coming months. (Click 45 seconds in to skip the interview).
Courtesy of NPR, you can listen to The xx’s entire set list from their show at D.C.’s 9:30 Club last Saturday. They opened for Hot Chip, whose show you can listen to in full as well. As usual, the recording is marvelously clear.
