Track of the week : Jamie XX – Loud Places

Not much of a story about this week’s selection, it just happens to be a song I’m particularly enjoying at the moment. I loved The XX’s debut album as much as everyone else did, but haven’t really listened to or thought about them much in the last few years, until I heard this.

Produced by Jamie XX and with vocals by Romy from The XX, it does beg the question of why it isn’t an XX record, but that’s a moot point really. It took a few listens to hook me, but once it did, I couldn’t remove it from my brain. Like another of my favourite bands, Hot Chip, it filters the dance music I love through an extra layer of melancholy. As always, enjoy.
