Peenko's Albums of 2009 #7 - The XX - s/t

I know it might sounds strange, but I ignored all of they hype that The XX were getting prior to the release of their eponymous debut. The South London four piece, would have completely passed me by if it wasn't for that distinctive album cover, something about it just sucked me, I am glad that it did. This year the wife has been trying to get me into the Cure, not that I'm biting, but I really felt that the melancholic minimalist pop songs of the latter are not too dissimilar to that of the three (previously four) twenty year olds. Ignore the backlash as this album is atmospheric, minimalistic and more importantly seductive, an absolute joy to behold.
