The xx’s music is fertile ground for imaginative covers, thanks to the space that the band creates and maintains within its own songs. Inspired by yesterday’s Tracey Thorn w/ Ben Watt cover of “Night Time,” we’ve collected nine more of the best xx tributes. Including a bonus Taylor Momsen cover! Score!
