New Xiu Xiu: "Boy Soprano"
Xiu Xiu's new album The Air Force will very likely be one of my favorite albums of the year based solely on the fact that it is a new Xiu Xiu album. Frankly, it could suck and I would still be absolutely in love with it, kinda like if the new Apples in Stereo album is complete trash (which it wont be) Matt would still listen to it 24 hours a day for the rest of the year. But lucky for the rest of you, you dont have to make that kind of decision based on love, you just have to listen to this new track from The Air Force to realize that this album is going to be something amazing.
[MP3]: Xiu Xiu :: Boy Soprano
This song will join songs like "Pox" and "I Luv The Valley, OH!" in the box of Xiu Xiu songs that I love because of the awesome guitar; "I Luv The Valley, OH!" is bass, but whatever. Wasting no time at all, the guitar riff jumps right at you only a mere 21 seconds into this song ringing in all it's bright glorious distortion. The guitat then gives way to a keyboard loop that sounds like an alarm going off as Jamie is shouting "Boy Soprano." If this song is any indication, The Air Force is going to an absolutely amzing album, but I never doubted for a second that it wouldn't be.
The Air Force will be out on September 15th on most likely Kill Rock Stars and was produced by the production genious of Deerhoof's Greg Saunier. For more details that have been around for months now, head over to www.xiuxiu.org.
