Xiu Xiu - Angel-Guts-Red-Classroom

Xiu Xiu will follow up their Nina Simone covers album with Angel Guts: Red Classroom, a 14-track effort of new and original work, due out February 4th via Polyvinyl. Dubbed “unsuitable for the faint of heart” by a press release, the LP is the sound of Xiu Xiu in their “darkest hour” as they tackle a host of heavy subjects, including “racialized sex, double suicide, double penetration, criminality, and fear of physical harm”.

Unsurprisingly, the latest track to surface is no walk in the park. “Lawrence Liquors” is a frightening aural blitz from the start, full of mutant shrieks, incongruous spatial blips, and, of course, Jamie Stewart’s creepy whisper. Listen in below.
