I love The Valley
Posted by Scott
Xiu Xiu’s "Fabulous Muscles" was certainly one of my favorite albums from 2004. This particular song is just simply amazing, I once started a remix of it but never finished; chalk that up on the to-do list for when I get home. Jamie Stewart’s style is so intense and this song is no exception; he’s been accused of being over the top or too melodramatic in his songwriting but it’s just right if you ask me. I think he’s now based out of San Francisco which makes it all that much better (There are very few Bay Area bands that I really enjoy). Hope this finds you well, greetings from Amsterdam.

Have you heard of Black Moth Super Rainbow? I was listening to them the other day and it made me think of your style and imagery. You should check it out if you haven’t. It’s got a real 70’s feel to it.

Xiu Xiu’s new album dropped yesterday, the cover of under pressure with Michael Gira (Angels of light/swans) is a gem. check it out if you have a moment.
