Dark Light

Just came back from The XX live in Paris (at le 104, which is conveniently located 30 seconds down the street from my place, nothing too fancy up in here, really it’s the pits). Had a pleasant time with Sabby (Editor of WS.fr with me and one half of the parentals : Mother). We had an enjoyable smooth night sailing through the short-ish set of London’s muched talked about trio. They performed a good selection from both Albums and a brilliant rendition of Wham’s classic ‘All I Want For Christmas”. Not to mention some pretty slick guitar and instrumentals on ‘Infinity’. All wrapped up I got quite itchy for dancing. But obviously was in the wrong place. When the french crowd decides not to move, they won’t. Music wasn’t helping either. Like a loaf of bread with no yeast you know. It didn’t pick up. Anyway…. We had fun, that’s me just being me… It was the coolest venue and the acoustics were pretty raaaad. Now Let’s start with Los Angeles based R&B artist Phlo Finister who just dropped this beauty on us :
