Video of the Moment #192: the xx

Back in the day, Carson Daly was a big deal in my and my friends’ lives. He hosted an afternoon show on MTV America called ‘Total Request Live’ (or ‘TRL’ for short) when the stars of the late ’90s music world – think boybands, poppy Shania Twain, Korn, and ‘Ray of Light’-era Madonna – would come on the show for a chat and perform. You know, kind of like what goes on now on ‘It’s on With Alexa Chung‘. But with a lot more character.

After ‘TRL’ was cancelled, Daly went off with the network with a peacock and was given a late-night talk show, ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’, filmed in Los Angeles. The show is on way too late past my bedtime, so if I’m ever going to see any of the performances, I have to wait for things to show up on YouTube like the one below. Last week, the xx performed ‘Crystalised’ on Daly’s show. And the video is prefaced with a decent bio on the band as well. Well worth a watch.
