Xiu Xiu is an experimental band from San Jose signed to Polivinyl records. Originally the brainchild of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jamie
Stewart, Xiu Xiu's line-up has fluctuated throughout the years, including members of bands such as Cold Cave and Parenthetical Girls. In spite
of this the only current members are Stewart and keyboardist Angelo Seo. Xiu Xiu are known for the dark subject matter of their lyrics and
strange ability to merge genres.
