The XX conquered the world with their debut album, which undressed rock songs like an attentive lover and then slipped slyly into everyone's record collection. After their buzz died down, producer Jamie XX stayed in the public eye with some high-profile remixes and side projects, but the rest of the band was conspicuously silent. Now the trio's returned with Coexist, an album that extends their aesthetic instead of expanding it. It's more of a good thing, and as with the band itself, there aren't any wild gestures — just another set of slinky, smoldering tracks. With John Talabot and 2:54. 18+.
