£18.99 – Limited Edition (500 Only) Marble Coloured Vinyl LP
Xiu Xiu is the conduit for the uncompromising and unnervingly personal musical works of Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist Jamie Stewart, plus a roll call of collaborators both in studio and onstage.
This latest Xiu Xiu album Girl With Basket Of Fruit is a rowdier, yet more stylistically splenetic offering than 2017’s Forget, with the usual eye-catching list of collaborators this time including Eugene Robinson (Oxbow), Devin Hoff and Haitian percussionists Emmanuel Obi and Ayo Okafor.
Streaming forth a ceaseless torrent of releases, side projects, art offerings and extensive international touring since 2002, Xiu Xiu’s music has veered from damaged avant-pop to artfully orchestrated rock, squalls of black-hearted noise and most bases around and between, ever served with a bruising honesty and intensity that has ripped out the hearts of a legion of obsessive listeners.
For 2019 live operations Xiu Xiu is manifest in the form of Stewart, Thor Harris (Swans) and Jordan Gieger (Minus Story/Shearwater).
