Jamie xx - Far Nearer/Beat For 7" (2011)


Steel drums have never sounded so good. Opener and title track, "Far Nearer" takes the phrase "I feel better when I have you near me" and pitches the fuck out of it, creating an unrecognizable, albeit pleasantly catchy 7-minute epic. B-side "Beat For" follows in the steps of post-dubstep pioneers James Blake and Mount Kimbie. Though it's not as catchy as "Far Nearer," it'll certainly please those looking for a more sinister and dark sound. Highly recommended!

    Just stopping by to say thank you, thank you all for this steady stream of tunes. You've made a lackluster day bright with much-needed sonic refreshment, and I'd feel oh-so selfish not chiming back to let you fine folks know the positive effect you're having on this stranger. :)
