Xiu Xiu/ Dear God, I Hate Myself

Instrumental, experimental, noisy, rock? pop? Xiu Xiu’s most accessible album yet. These tracks take their strange mélange of sounds and transform them into catchy, cool melancholic songs. In concert, they performed certain songs with a Nintendo DS. Enjoy! Jamie Stewart’s vocal-sounds are truly unique and compelling.
