In the weekly A.V. Club column “Hear This“, writers feature songs that never fail to be worth hearing. In sync with the rising temperatures, this A.V. Club asks “what song says summer so far to you this year?” The answer turned out to be Xenia Rubinos‘ “Whirlwind” off her latest offering, Magic Trix.
“On “Whirlwind,” Rubinos and drummer Marco Buccelli sound like a down-to-earth version of Björk, all gorgeous and weird but never floating too far into the ether.” – A.V. Club
