Jamie xx, one-third of the band the xx, will be releasing his debut solo album in June.
Last year he gave us the double-sided single “She”/“Sleep Sound”.
Another song to be included on the album In Colour is “Loud Places” featuring the vocals of the xx singer Romy Madley Croft.
On his new one, Glass Riffer, he manipulates sound to such an extent that on the song “Feel the Lightning” the female voice is actually Deacon himself.
Their new album Wasted on the Dream features the song “Black Cherry Pie” on which the brothers cleverly solicited the flute-playing of the great Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull.
Andy Gill is currently the only original member on the new album What Happens Next.
“Broken Talk” features Alison Mosshart of The Kills and Dead Weather on vocals.
Josh Tillman’s 2nd album under the moniker Father John Misty is enticingly entitled I Love You, Honeybear.
Even more powerful than his debut Fear Fun, listen here to “Bored in the USA” as well as the title track.
