“Hi” (Video)

    You can always expect Xiu Xiu’s videos to be hard to explain and hard to understand, and this video for their new single, “Hi,” is no different: It’s a clip that’s part found footage collage and part manifesto. I’m not sure what to say here beyond that, except that if you don’t like watching shots of burning dolls, move along. This isn’t as shocking as that Xiu Xiu video with the woman puking, but then again, nothing is.  

    Xiu Xiu’s Always is due out on March 6 via Polyvinyl.
