Þú segir aldrei neitt, þú ert ísjaki
Þú ert ísilagður
Þú þegir þunnu hljóði og felur þig bakvið

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.
Sometimes it lasts in love
but sometimes it hurts instead

Blunderbuss, the debut solo album by Jack White, was released on 23rd April 2012 on Third Man Records / XL Recordings. Produced by White and recorded at his own Third Man Studio in Nashville, 'Blunderbuss' has been described by White as "an album I couldn't have released until now. I've put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name. These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colours on my own canvas."
Please forgive my heart It’s not that the problem lies anywhere in there

October 22nd 2012 will see the release of the third Titus Andronicus album titled Local Business via XL Recordings in North America. While the first two albums were elaborate concoctions, Local Business is of the Earth. Titus Andronicus the studious recording project and Titus Andronicus the raucous touring machine are no longer two distinct beings; there is only Titus Andronicus, rock and roll band. This is to say, it was recorded primarily live with precious few overdubs, with an elite squad of musicians.
I know you've been hurt by someone else
I can tell by the way you carry yourself
But if you let me, here's what I'll do
I'll take care of you
