Strange Brew Presents Xiu Xiu Live

Details

The indomitable project duo XIU XIU formed of Jamie Stewart and Angela Seo return to the Brew after their brain-cracking sell out show from last June. Their music is an intense clash of voodoo drumming, noizey post-punk, trad Asian percussion and contemporary compositions.⁠

From the beginning, Xiu Xiu combined these sounds in striking ways, whether on their brass and percussion-dominated 2002 debut album Knife Play or the hushed electro-acoustic experiments of 2003's A Promise.⁠

Over the years, the band's music spanned the rousing synth pop of 2012's Always to the cathartic darkness of 2019's Girl with a Basket of Fruit. In the 2020s, the empowering collaborations of 2021's Oh No and the stark dualities of 2023's Ignore Grief reaffirmed that Xiu Xiu's emotional honesty was still as genuine as ever.⁠While they often expressed alienation brilliantly, Stewart and Seo frequently worked with artists such as Mary Halvorson, Merzbow, and Charlemagne Palestine.
