Subhead says it all – you can start getting psyched for the
new Xiu Xiu album here:



Xiu Xiu – Hi by Xiu Xiu



For Always, the
band – Jamie Stewart, Angela Seo, Bettina Escauriza, Marc
Riordan, and returning member Devin
Hoff – worked with producer Deerhoof”s
Greg Saunier (who also
contributes drums and vocals to the album). It was mixed by John Congleton (Antony and the Johnsons, Marilyn Manson, the Roots). They advise us thusly:


“At its core, Always symbolizes the mutual
camaraderie with and deep dedication to each person who has internalized Xiu Xiu’s work, tattooed its name on
their skin or soul, and throughout the past ten years made the band a part of
their lives.


“The origin of these intense, everlasting bonds is Stewart. His fearless lyrics have
given voice to life’s most untouchable and taboo subjects, while his
distinctively committed but hushed vocals crystallize and medicate their
unsettling impact.”
