The heavyweight vinyl version features a die cut picture sleeve and all purchases from the Numbers come with free MP3’s or Wav’s.
Here is the new track from Jamie xx, the percussionist from The xx. Focus on Caribbean steel drums and very Burial-esque type pitch-shifted vocal.
"Far Nearer"’ is an understated yet powerful production, its ecstatic, steel drum-driven rhythm merging beautifully with the pitch bent and re-interpreted vocal phrase "I Feel Better When I Have You Near Me".
In February 2010, Gil Scott-Heron released "I'm New Here", his first album in thirteen years. In August 2009, as a member and producer of The xx, Jamie xx released his debut album "xx".
The album "We're New Here" sees Jamie xx remixing thirteen tracks from the original "I'm New Here" album sessions.
