xx-the xx

Hmmmm. The xx is a UK based group that has knocked my socks clear off with their alternative pop that is perfectly suited for some late night soul searching, sharing of souls in the night time air or driving home at midnight when you are one of the only cars on the road. Always the unexpected surprises are the best, this album has filled me up and brought a smile to my face as it welcomes me home.

    I leave for work at 3:30am; I’m ALWAYS one of the only cars on the road!

    I do like this, and your description of it is spot on.

    Hope you are well, or at least better than the server.

    That is so funny, I had no idea you were one of the only cars on the road in the morning. That is certainly early. I am so happy that you love this and hopefully you can add to your playlist for driving to work. :-)
