Xiu Xiu is the conduit for the uncompromising and unnervingly personal musical works of Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist Jamie Stewart, plus a roll call of collaborators both in studio and onstage, most recently Angela Seo. Streaming forth a ceaseless gush of releases, side projects, art offerings and extensive international touring since 2002, Xiu Xiu has acted as a stark and brutally frank document of Jamie’s personal life, mapped to music that has veered from damaged avant-pop, artfully orchestrated rock, squalls of black-hearted noise and most bases around and between, and ever served with a bruising honesty and intensity that has ripped out the hearts of a legion of obsessive listeners.

Never a group willing not to work, Xiu Xiu has collaborated live or in the studio with Grouper, Michael Gira, Deerhoof, Carla Bozulich, Nitzer Ebb, Larsen, Little Annie, Oxbow (see this year’s unflinching Sal Mineo collaboration with Eugene Robinson), Lawrence English, Zola Jesus, Devendra Banhart and Baby Dee, and with visual artists including Monika Gryzmala, David Horvitz and Dahn Vo.

Xiu Xiu’s latest album, "Forget" was released in february 2017.

The word Xiu Xiu is said to mean “cute”, a poisonous flower, a child’s word for pee pee and the name of a film portraying a young woman’s death during the Cultural Revolution.
