One of the biggest bands on the planet, The xx, have revealed plans that they might begin work on a follow up to their ultra international debut later this year. Bassist and vocalist Oliver Simm told XFM in UK "We've found touring to be not too creative. We come home in October so hopefully we’ll start writing then. I think there will be pressure on us. This album was made with no expectations of us; no-one knew who we were. A lot of the songs were written in the mind frame that only the three of us would hear them. Writing in the mind frame that a lot of people might hear these new songs will be different, but hopefully it's something we can block out."

One of the most influential bands of all time, Fugazi, may make every show they ever played available digitally very shortly.

This maybe the biggest live catalogue the music world has ever seen considering Fugazi played a plethora of shows in their tenure.
