SXSW is the perfect place for sites to load up on performance footage of all the buzz bands. So, of course, we have a clip from xx playing for KCRW. The London band performs a streamlined take on “Crystalised”. Yeah, I know everything they do is “streamlined”, but this stretches their patented minimalism even further.


Here’s an earlier live take on the tune from another public radio outlet, KEXP, late last year.
