Dark Reminder

Xiu Xiu-Clowne Towne

Xiu Xiu is a band that challenges it's listeners with every song it makes. But Xiu Xiu's great strength is that while making challenging music they make music that has a kind of scarred beauty to it. Jaime Stewart's lyrics are intense, morose, and over the top. His voice, filled with pain and exigency. All the while electronic blips skitter around drums machines and exploding keyboards and guitars. All thses factors come together to make some of the best music I heard in 2004. This song is from their last album "Fabulous Muscles", there new one "La Foret" is due July 12th on 5RC.
