|On their 2005 release, Xiu Xiu mixes all types of music, noise, and sounds. In doing so, they have constructed a haunting album that defies all musical boundaries and definitions.
It's really impossible to describe an album such as this in words... Is it post-punk? Is it post-rock? Is it noise pop? Is it indie rock? Is it folk? Is it classical? Is it synth pop? It's really a little of everything... and it's great. It really is.
My favorite songs on the album are "Pox", which showcases the band's post-punk influences and almost reminds me of Joy Division, and "Bog People", which is a noise rock anthem that would make Sonic Youth proud.
If you're into creative music... or good music... or both... you should check this album out. It's sure not to disappoint.
