Xiu Xiu
Dear God, I Hate Myself
(Kill Rock Stars)
Releasing: 23 February

There’s a new Xiu Xiu album coming out, which I don’t suspect anybody is too excited about, more so that people are awaiting its release in some religious, jaw-clenching fugue state. That’s music for you, though. Some people like to enjoy it, others like to let it motivate their affected agony to tortured, romantic climax.

SONG LIST
01 Gray Death
02 Chocolate Makes You Happy
03 Apple for a Brain
04 House Sparrow
05 Hyunhye’s Theme
06 Dear God, I Hate Myself
07 Secret Motel
08 Falkland Rd.
09 The Fabrizio Palumbo Retaliation
10 Cumberland Gap
11 This Too Shall Pass Away (For Freddy)
12 Impossible Feeling
