Boomkat Product Review:
The indomitable Xiu Xiu is driven to ecstatic, noisy new heights by a battery of Haitian voodoo drummers and co-production by Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier in ‘Girl With Basket of Fruit’
Coming off like Muslimgauze and Cut Hands gone no wave in NYC, 1980, the vibe of Xiu Xiu’s 11th studio album references rituals, mythology and divergent belief systems to realise a bleeding raw, tense and agitated record that mirrors the mood of the times.
Co-produced by the band’s Angela Seo with Deerhoof’s Grege Saunier, and incorporating a big cast including Eugene Robinson (Oxbow) and Haitian percussionists Emmanuel Obi and Ayo Okafor, alongside regulars such as Jamie Stewart doing his tortured avant-cabaret thing and Devin Hoff on all manner of basses, the result is arguably the fiercest and most psychoactive episode in Xiu Xiu’s endlessly amorphous oeuvre, but not without its calmer moments of poignancy.
