Vondelpark - 'California Analog Dream'

The xx meet James Blake...in Surrey

Vondelpark are from Surrey, not Amsterdam like the public park that gives them their name, but this is as laid-back and spaced out as anything some Dutch grass-lovers could dream up. “I’m making mistakes” sings Lewis Rainsbury over crisp beats with touches of The xx’s production and James Blake’s sonic inquisitiveness. This is good, so he really, really isn’t.
