When they aren't soundtracking Olympics-related ads or touring non-stop, The xx like to remix other bands, like tourmates Florence and the Machine, or themselves. The latest band to be xx'd, if you will, is Magic Wands, a Nashville couple that also digs the drum machine. According to the release, Chris and Dexy Valentine met on MySpace and soon began mailing each other gifts, including "toy lions, old records, handwritten poems and one glowing heart lamp." Magic Wands has an EP out and is working on a full-length.
The xx's remix of "Warrior" can be downloaded on the band's RCRD LBL page.
