xiu xiu is not that weird

a few odd nuggets from pitchforks 7.9 review of xiu xiu's women as lovers:

"more scarily fucked-up than sensitive or emotionally open."

"a squeaking-helium hell of noise."

"women as lovers sounds no more conceptual than a spurting artery."

why is he pretending to like the record? also, the review says: "[xiu xiu's] art seems to be more about who he is than who he'd like to be."

this frustrates me. half of jamie stewart's songs are first person narratives from the perspective of a woman. how can it be about "who he is?"
