Nospray x de Doelen present

Xiu Xiu is an experimental American band founded in Los Angeles. Over the last two decades, Xiu Xiu has had a consistent and dazzling output of critically acclaimed albums and collaborations. Xiu Xiu makes vulnerable music at the intersection of noise, pop and industrial and their album 13'' Frank Beltrame Italian Stiletto with Bison Horn Grips is exactly that.

13'' Frank Beltrame Italian Stiletto with Bison Horn Grips is Xiu Xiu's latest album, but only at first glance. Beneath that face is the struggle of a need that wants to declare itself over every record, and every song ever written by Xiu Xiu himself, but also everyone who has ever attempted to make a record.

Nine songs to seal the deal for those who still listen to all nine songs in order, because the message cannot be read in parts. Mixed by John Congleton who got the message from the band to feel free to ''get crazy'' and if there was ever any doubt about the meaning of that, ''choose iconoclasm''.

This record sounds (and feels) like it cares. A feeling that masks the arbitrariness of our place in this world, or even more completely, portrays it as the true face of all our public endeavors.
