“Shelter” (The xx Cover, Live at the Knitting Factory, Brooklyn) (Video)

    It seems like no one escaped the pull of the xx’s moody, affecting debut last year. El Perro del Mar covered one of the album’s best cuts, the morose and desperate “Shelter,” last week at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. You can bet that the xx’s Romy Madley Croft doesn’t put as much physical zest into her performance as Sarah Assbring does, but the soul of the track remains much the same. [Pitchfork]
