Here are a couple more amazing videos from KEXP’s broadcast during CMJ at the Cutting Room Studios NYC. Gathering huge buzz lately is young UK band The xx, who turn out a hypnotic rendition of “Crystalised”, and Australian (by way of England) group The Temper Trap, whose “Fader” has to be one of the catchiest songs you’ll hear all year!

    Better late than never to say it, but: tasty, very very tasty. Completely different sounds, but that’s what you need for a well-balanced ear experience!

    Have you listened to new Temper Trap yet? if not, you’re really missing out. You can stream it on Rolling Stone right now…
