Xiu Xiu - Dear God, I Hate Myself (new album / MP3)

[19 February 2010]

By Tyler Gould

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.
