2001年にカリフォルニア州サンノゼで結成された米国のポストパンクバンドXiu Xiu。このグループが2008年に発表したカルト的名作"Women as Lovers"が、新たなジャケットデザイン&180グラム重量盤にて初LPリイシュー!!タイトル[Women As Lovers]はノーベル文学賞を受賞したオーストリアの小説家エルフリーデ・イェリネクの小説から取ったもので、拷問された前衛ポップという趣旨で作られている模様。最も優れた音楽性を発揮していた時期の録音であり、ノイズの断片やら躓く様な展開、ヒステリックなボーカルが絶妙な違和感として作用する、クイーン&デヴィッド・ボウイの共作[Under Pressure]のカバーを含む全14曲を披露。インサートが付属。







180g vinyl in black sleeve + insert

We are proud to present a new edition of Xiu Xiu's cult classic Women as Lovers. Originally released on budget vinyl in 2008, this is its first high quality edition on vinyl ever pressed. Named after Elfriede Jelinek’s seminal novel, this album contains 14 slabs of tortured, avant pop at its best. It includes a lauded cover of the Queen/ David Bowie's single “Under Pressure” featuring Swans leader Michael Gira.

The album was recorded by a legendary line up consisting of Caralee McElroy, Ches Smith and Jamie Stewart and features Angela Seo’s first Xiu Xiu credit for lyrics and sound effects. It was mixed and co-produced by the band’s long time friend and collaborator Greg Saunier of Deerhoof.

This new edition is released on 180g vinyl in edition of 1000 and features new revisited artwork and liner notes by Jamie Stewart.

“Women As Lovers is a joyful affair in many ways, yet Stewart’s demons constantly linger in the background.” Mia Clarke, The Wire, Feb 2008

“This album is frantic and wild, with swatches of noise and Jamie Stewart's voice often quivering on the edge of a panic attack.” Brian Howe, Pitchfork, Jan 2008
