Xiu Xiu, Knife Play
And that cover sticker will tell you just about everything you need to know about Xiu Xiu’s sound. If you like those things, you’ll like this. Well, that’s not entirely true
This really is an album that people either love or hate. Listen to it alone for a while, learn its idiosyncrasies, revel in its quirks. And then try playing it for someone else. My statistical research has to this point proven that one out of every six people likes Knife Play. That one person, though, will adore it. I’m hoping you’ll be that person.
