Wonder Where We Land

"Peak of the empire,

Top of the rock."

Wonder Where We Land follows SBTRKT's critically acclaimed eponymous debut album and a recent interim release of six instrumentals called Transitions, which joined the creative dots between the first and second albums.

FKA twigs

LP1

201411Aug
LP1

"I know it hurts,
You know, I'd quench that thirst."

LP1 is FKA twigs defining artistic statement to date, building on the success of her two previous EPs and accompanying videos (EP1 and EP2) which have elevated FKA twigs from a word-of-mouth secret to global obsession over the past two years. LP1 features none of these previously released songs; instead each track on LP1 is brand new, born out of FKA twigs’ artistic philosophy of spontaneous creation and collaboration in the studio.

"Right on time,

Back by the beach,

Still gon' bring the heat."

Jungle are based around a core musical duo of lifelong friends known simply as ‘J’ and ‘T’, who expand to a thrilling seven piece live, and make mesmeric, kaleidoscopic modern soul that’s unmistakably born in the UK but has true global appeal. The album was recorded between the band’s own home studio in Shepherds Bush, London and the XL Recordings studio in nearby Ladbroke Grove.

Lazaretto

"I'm so Detroit,

I make it rise from the ashes"

Jack White presents his new album Lazaretto, to be released June 9th on Third Man Records/XL Recordings. Lazaretto inhabits an exciting place in White's expansive discography as the follow-up to 2012's gold-certified international no. 1, Blunderbuss.

Nothing New

During the 2008 I'm New Here sessions at New York’s Looking Glass studios, Scott-Heron recorded stripped-down new versions of some of his greatest songs. Accompanying himself on piano and with no overdubs, this is Nothing New, a unique musical insight into one of the most profound recording artists of our time.

Luminous

Luminous was recorded over 15 months in the band’s east London studio-laboratory-bunker with co-producer Craig Silvey, it’s the follow-up to the band’s 2007 debut Strange House, the Mercury-nominated Primary Colours (2009), and the critically-acclaimed Skying (2011).

6 Feet Beneath The Moon

Same old bobby, same old beat

yeah, they ain't got nothin' on me

6 Feet Below the Moon, the debut album from King Krule AKA Archy Marshall, will be released on Saturday 24 August, Archy's 19th birthday, by XL.

Kveikur

Þú segir aldrei neitt, þú ert ísjaki

Þú ert ísilagður

Þú þegir þunnu hljóði og felur þig bakvið

Ísjaka

Sigur Rós's new studio album, Kveikur, will be released on XL Recordings worldwide on 17th / 18th June 2013. The record, which was self-produced by the three members of Sigur Rós: Jón Þór Birgisson, Georg Holm and Orri Páll Dýrason, sees the band shifting towards a more direct, aggressive sound.

Modern Vampires of the City

The gloves are off

The wisdom teeth are out

What you on about?

Skyfall

Skyfall

This is the end

Hold your breath and count to ten

Skyfall is the official theme song to the latest James Bond feature film. Written by ADELE with Paul Epworth, it was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, and features the lush accompaniment of a 77-piece orchestra.

The xx

Coexist

201210Sep
Coexist

And with words unspoken

A silent devotion

I know you know what I mean

Three years after their Mercury-winning debut, The xx are back with a new album, Coexist, and a new perspective. Where their first record lent in close to whisper in your ear, Coexist gazes warmly in your eyes. Much has happened to lead to this point: most pertinently, they’ve grown up. Coexist is an album of confident adult reflection. Angels, sung by Romy, is a perfectly distilled love song. Its counter is Fiction led by Oliver, a bittersweet ballad that’s strength lies in naming its fear. What has changed for The xx? Nothing, and everything. Older and wiser, surer yet still so tender, Coexist finds itself on the other side of heartbreak, when the light returns.
