I'll be honest: I haven't checked in with Xiu Xiu since 2002's Knife Play. Around then, Jamie Stewart's abrasive and traumatic avant pop sounded groundbreaking and exciting. Ten years later, Stewart's dramatic warble belies the absence of theatrics in the band's instrumentation, but he's honed his craft so well at this point that such histrionics are no longer needed. Lastly, "Hives Hives" still hits like a bat to the head. GRANT BRISSEY
