It’s hard for me to believe that it’s been 10 years since Xiu XIu released their debut Knife Play. 10 years of the most disturbing and ravishing experimental pop out there.
I’ll be brief: if you’re reading this and you have a chance to see Xiu Xiu live, you should see Xiu Xiu live. Jamie Stewart’s voice and guitar playing are unlike anything. Brutal, yet fragile. Impetuous, yet graceful. He works hard on stage. I was awed. What else is there to say?
