Limited to 1,500 Indie Exclusive 180 Gram Reflex Blue Vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve.
Previously out of print, 2004's Fabulous Muscles has been re-mastered for vinyl. Xiu Xiu's best selling and most critically acclaimed album includes "I Luv the Valley OH!," "Crank Heart," "Clowne Towne" and more. The music is drawn from British post punk and synth pop, modern Western classical, noise and experimental music, Asian percussion music, American folk, torch singers, house, techno and 1950s rock n roll. There are sounds used to rhythmically push some songs forward in a top 40 way but with fewer straight beats. Noise restrictions also led to more use of single, quiet acoustic instruments. This record is the most pop Xiu Xiu record and the most experimental. It was recorded at home in Seattle and Oakland.
