As we reported in March, Jamie xx will release a 12" containing the tracks "Sleep Sound" and "Girl" on May 5th. You can already stream the former right here on Zumic, and now we've got the latter as well. Take a listen to "Girl" above.

With an accompanying visual of drifting rectangles that each mimic a different instrument's waveform, "Girl" is laid out in front of you in an intriguingly minimal fashion that befits Jamie xx's cut-and-paste approach to sampling. The producer shepherds seemingly disparate sounds like a slappy bassline, Bond theme-style brass and airy vocal samples into a cohesive whole, ending up with a jerky, Onra-meets-early Flying Lotus vibe. Along with "Sleep Sound," this is some of the best spacey electronica you'll find all year.

Preorder Girl / Sleep Sound from the Young Turks webstore, and check out more of Jamie xx's music right here on Zumic.
