RMHQ Weekly Staff Pick
This week's pick is from Pete, our mighty leader and most inventive sandwich maker to walk the earth...
The xx- xx
"Released late last year, The xx's debut album was a welcome highlight in 2009. Housed in a Saville-esque sleeve, loaded with '80s references and a large chunk of '00s Londontown, this album won me over pretty quickly. It's warm, haunting, sparse and very beautiful. They've been nominated for this year's Mercury Prize and they'd surely get my vote!"
