Xiu Xiu – “Forget”

“Forget” acts as a summary piece of Xiu Xiu’s work up to this point, and allows new listeners to understand the band’s sound, without having to dig deep into their extensive catalog of work. Their trademark experimental art pop sound and tight production is accented by Jamie Stewart’s powerful vocal performances, and allows the band to create a plethora of memorable moments, ranging from subtle and beautiful ballads to dark and abrasive noise. This album is weird, dark, and fun, but may take a few listens to get comfortable with.
