Feb 14, 2014 ‘Angel Guts’ gets us excited about Xiu Xiu again
Xiu Xiu Angel Guts: Red Classroom Polyvinyl ★★★ ★(out of 5 stars) As if anticipating the patience test of 2013’s Nina , a raw exercise that stretched listenability even by their own shocking standards, Xiu Xiu returns a mere three months later to reintroduce some welcome structure into their trembling, nauseous ether.

College boyfriends: we've all had them. Mine was mostly pretty mean to me as I quixotically pursued him for reasons I cannot explain, but he did know a lot about music, and introduced me to artists that have since become some of my favorites, so that was nice. One such act was Xiu Xiu, the avant-garde project that sprang from the fevered mind of frontman Jamie Stewart in 2002 and has been going ...

Dec 29, 2013 Album reviews: Joey Sweeney, Bottle Rockets, and Xiu Xiu
For the last two decades, Joey Sweeney has created some of this city's most literate and snarky rock-and-roll, starting with the Barnabys in the early '90s and then with The Trouble With Sweeney around the turn of the century. After 2004's Fishtown Briefcase, he set aside his music career and focused on Philebrity, the Philly arts- and-culture website. He returned to the stage in late 2011 with ...
Dec 17, 2013 Xiu Xiu’s Nina Simone covers filed under deep novelty
Xiu Xiu – Nina Graveface Records ★★ (out of 5 stars) Jamie Stewart’s unflinching electro-pop outfit Xiu Xiu doesn’t so much push the artistic envelope as shreds it, lights it on fire and then snorts the ashes.
