The xx — Fantasy (Testudo's Together Alone Bootleg)
DC native and NYC based Noah Yoo, aka Testudo, just released a pleasantly chilled out and aptly titled take on The xx's Fantasy we've been getting into this week. Taking pieces of the haunting original and smartly combining them with a minimal surrounding of crisp drum kicks, strung out guitar, and shimmering backbeats — he's created a slow jam-esque anthem for that disparate feeling wintertime can sometimes bring. This one's generously out for free download, so be sure to get yourself a copy.
