Xiu Xiu's "Stupid in The Dark" Is a Three-Minute Slasher Film

by James Rickman

Today, the first video from Xiu Xiu's new album, Angel Guts: Red Classroom, makes its blood-soaked debut on Stereogum. We've been waiting for this album since the band announced that it would take on "racialized sex, double suicide, double penetration, criminality, fear of physical harm..." Fitting, then, that this video is one long B-movie murder scene. Singer Jamie Stewart, as ever, manages to sound violently unhinged and totally in control at the same time.

Angel Guts: Red Classroom comes out on Polyvinyl tomorrow.
