Blue Water Black Death

(Graveface) I have never been a fan of Xiu Xiu. I remember once going through a couple of their (his)  records, desperately looking for a track I could dig just a little to justify my friends' interest in the band, and coming up empty. It's not that I don't like weird, boring, art music, just not that particular weird, boring, art music. HOWEVER, apparently if you take Mr. Xiu (Jamie Stewart) and couple him with  a dude bearing a super dramatic rich awesome guy singing voice (Shearwater's Jonathan Meiburg), that's a horse/water/death of a different color. This record takes you to the spooky underwater museum and gives you one of those Walkman audio tours. Aqua-tacular!
