Prefab Sprout – Let There Be Music

September 6, 2009

The xx – Crystalised

September 6, 2009


The first thirty seconds of this beam us back into the glorious post-punk days of the early 1980s. A marriage of the powerful, gloomy atmosphere of The Cure around Seventeen Seconds with the minimalistic low-key indie pop tunes of the Young Marble Giants. Sometimes retro can be really cool.
