If you're alone tonight, say
OH HAI XIU XIU

There's a running theme of Page 96 from the new issue today. Firstly, someone on twitter made an arbitrary reference to Victoria Beckham.
WARNING: INVOLVES MOMMIE DEAREST MOMENT
That's more of a side effect triggered by the actual content of this blog - Xiu Xiu have a new single and the video is out. It's a cheerful tune matched by a cheerful video and it's a bit like Vice magazine turned into a flickbook.
We don't think Jamie Stewart (the one with the short back and sides) would like Victoria Beckham, but we like the juxtaposition, in the same way this video has eschewed narrative for a mixture of incoherent images from the burning of stuff to a glitter painting. We're probably alone here, but we actually like the song too.
If you like this song (Hi, not Let Your Head Go) then you'll very much like the new Xiu Xiu album which is more of the same.
