Xiu Xiu - Girl with Basket of Fruit

Deleting my old review. It was a bit messy, especially with me now feeling like this is one of my strongest 10/10s. It is also my favorite album of 2019 easily

When I first heard the single “Punpkin Attack On Mommy and Daddy” I can remember waking up in the morning after falling asleep to Swans and this track was just auto playing. I liked it a lot, and had no idea it was a new song

I see the whole album drops on AOTY and it has about a 64 average score. A pretty low score for AOTY standards. I gave it a listen and was just amazed by it. It’s rare that an album comes out with this amount of effort poured into it where the final product is so instantaneously misunderstood. The first time I heard this I was amazed by how weird it was. The 50th time, I’m blown away by how all these pieces somehow fit into a real, emotional, and destructive experience. It feels truly alien, and overwhelming.

I haven’t always been a big fan of Xiu Xiu, and I still don’t love most of the discography, but on GWBOF, the sound is rich, the texture is there, and the story is riveting. It is easily a top 5 of the decade for me, and a once in a lifetime listen that I continue to appreciate even 5 years later

Xiu Xiu, more like
Communism (from Latin communis, 'common, universal')[1][2] is a left-wing to far-left sociopolitical, philosophical, and economic ideology within the socialist movement,[1] whose goal is the creation of a communist society, a socioeconomic order centered around common ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange that allocates products to everyone in the society based on need.[3][4][5] A communist society would entail the absence of private property and social classes,[1] and ultimately money[6] and the state (or nation state).[7][8][9]

Communists often seek a voluntary state of self-governance but disagree on the means to this end. This reflects a distinction between a more libertarian socialist approach of communization, revolutionary spontaneity, and workers' self-management, and a more authoritarian vanguardist or communist party-driven approach through the development of a socialist state, followed by the withering away of the state.
