JMac turned me onto The xx (she lives in England so she's totally up on the BritPop..)
They're pretty great. Perfect for listening to on quiet nights during late hours.
This song makes me think of a movie trailer. Very blurred lights, city streets, forlorn faces in taxi-cab windows, muted tones, painful glances. (I always thought it would be a wonderful job to assemble trailers and pick the appropriate music).
