Below is a little more information about the artists:
Xiu Xiu began in 2002 to try to make music for people opposed to and opposed by the horror and disquiet of life.
Xiu Xiu is Shayna Dunkelman, Angela Seo and Jamie Stewart. Each member, a respected and extraordinary artist in their right, together have never played with more intensity, dedication, and doomy love/hate.
The group draws upon musical traditions of British post-punk, 20th century classical, industrial noise, experimental and traditional percussion music, 50s rock and roll, field recordings, queer dance-pop, and kosmische.
The past three years have been more productive than ever. Xiu Xiu released their 11th studio album, collaborated with Mitski, Merzbow, Eugene Robinson, Mantra Percussion, and Lawrence English and recorded reinterpretations of the music of Nina Simone (NINA), American religious songs (Unclouded Sky), Mozart’s The Magic Flute, and the music of Twin Peaks (Plays The Music of Twin Peaks, which entered the Billboard charts twice in May and September).
In this period Xiu Xiu also became involved in the art and film world. They created museum installations with Danh Vo, David Horvitz, and Phil Collins and are currently scoring films for John Cameron Mitchell, Dennis Cooper, and Susanne Sachsse.
Throughout their career they have been called “self-flagellating,” “harsh,” “brutal,” “shocking,” and “perverse;” but also “genius,” “brilliant,” “unique,” “imaginative,” and “luminous.”
A true child of post-genre, Avi hooks up neo-glam aesthetics with unmapped sound territories for an age yet to come, playing around with his persona, real, imagined, on or offline.
