Matthew McBride Words like "dark" might apply to this but the term is misleading here. Angel Guts: Red Classroom isn't just some darkened monolith of claustrophobic heaviness.

This album is unnerving. It rattles rusted sheets of aluminum siding, it offers omens, it breathes heavily from behind a dirty blanket in an abandoned house that meth heads use to get fucked up.

This album is neurosis made tangible.

Xiu Xiu have made an album unlike any previous. Redefining their already near undefinable sound. Favorite track: Black Dick.

Arnaldo Román Somehow it reminds me of Einsturzende Neubauten but in a darker sense. This band is way more obscure and its lyrics are more in the existentialist side. Those who like Einsturzende Neubauten and How to Destroy Angels will surely appreciate this album, maybe even more. Favorite track: Archie's Fades.
