Lately, the xx have been welcoming some special guests to the stage during their Day + Night residency in Brixton. In the past few days, they’ve performed with Robyn, Cat Power, and Savages Jehnny Beth. At their most recent show, they tried something different. Way back in 2009, Jamie xx memorably remixed Florence & The Machine’s cover of Candi Staton’s “You Got The Love.” Since then, both the xx and Florence have grown to become festival headliners. And now, as Pitchfork points out, they’ve come back together to do a rare live version of that 2009 remix. Watch a fan-made video below, via Pitchfork.
The “live remix” seems like such an awful idea, but that ruled.
