a truly cathartic & eclectic collection where avant-pop meets strains of choral music, kraut rock & field recordings.

confronting controversial & taboo subjects with honesty & outsider empathy, that such dazzling music can so seamlessly blend with undeniably dark content (murder of afghan teens by us troops, abortion, family crisis) is but one of the ways this band succeeds in accentuating their talent & admirable intent. “there is a musical & lyrical fearlessness to jamie stewart’s creations which make xiu xiu’s music a thousand times more effective than the music of most people with guitars & synths & low self-esteem” 9/10 – drowned in sound.
