Xiu Xiu Get Deep And Cathartic On Angel Guts: Red Classroom

New for you from Xiu Xiu: Angel Guts: Red Classroom, which will be released on Feb 4th on Polyvinyl Records. The album spins a dark tale of what Jamie Stewart encountered when he moved from North Carolina to an (unkowingly) seedy neighborhood in Los Angeles.


The press release spins the tale: "A park divided among four gangs, a lake routinely dragged for bodies, a building wherein two infant skeletons were recently uncovered -- the aura of his new home bleeds into every pore of the album, each lyric and note bearing traces of its essence: the terrible beauty, the despair, the violence, the ultra humanity, the uncertainty."

So this should be a happy album. The influence can be cathartic, as heard in the preview single "Stupid in the Dark," below.

"I know to a degree I must have romanticized it, But when it's not safe to go out at night, what else can one?" said Jamie Stewart.
