I Know You Can

Jamie xx “Girl”

Jamie xx’s music is easy to enjoy, but it’s difficult to articulate what exactly is so good about it. A lot of electronic artists occupy a similar space – a mellow groove indebted to hip-hop with some sort of vocal sample looped through it as a hook – but aside from Four Tet, not many pull it off quite as well. “Girl,” one side of his new single, feels a bit more full than what he’s usually up to, but it doesn’t quite escape his usual minimalism. As sedate as it is, it seems a little more dramatic than what he’s done in the past — there’s some vague gesture towards some kind of cinematic emotion here, even if it’s “cinematic” in a very indie film sort of way.

Buy it from Amazon.
