But hearing that Xiu Xiu would be covering songs identified with Nina Simone on a new release, it was hard not get excited. There’s an obvious spiritual connection between the artists, a sense of fearlessness and deep belief in the transformative power of expressing raw emotion. Nina is a low-key release that is not "the new Xiu Xiu album" but it’s still hard not to be disappointed at this wasted opportunity. The strangest thing of all is that the failure is due almost entirely to Stewart’s vocal conception.

The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know.

Nina (Xiu Xiu album). The idea for the album came while Jamie Stewart was on tour with Swans. Nina was recorded in a day. The album features Jamie Stewart's voice, Ches Smith on drums, Tim Berne and Tony Malaby on saxophones, Andrea Parkins on accordion, and Mary Halvorson on guitar. The latter four had experience in avant jazz. The album reimagines rather. than recreates Nina Simone's songs

With Nina, Xiu Xiu's Jamie Stewart pays homage to her restless talent and spirit instead of trying to re-create her sound. He finds his own voice - literally and figuratively - for these songs, and makes some provocative choices. Stewart pushes himself vocally and musically, and Nina is some of the most avant-garde music he's made in years (that the idea for the album came about while he was touring with Swans sheds more light on its aesthetic). He recruited players - Tim Berne, Tony Malaby, Mary Halvorson, and Andrea Parkins - with roots in avant jazz to honor and expand on the most tumultuous side of Simone's body of work, and Nina's wiry arrangements and instrumentation allow them to follow Stewart nimbly.

Genre: Avant-Garde Jazz. Even if it is too avant-garde for its own good, Xiu Xiu's horrifying tribute to Nina Simone is what I would consider the most unique album I've heard this decade, bar none. Jamie Stewart's vocals sound utterly devastating in the most theatrical way and can clearly act as a double-edge sword of the album because of these factors. If you absolutely can't stand the breathiness and overdramatic tone of his vocals then I'd imagine you wouldn't be able to sit through this for long.

It’s perhaps no accident that Xiu Xiu’s most ambitious album in years is entirely made up of Nina Simone songs. Simone, not unlike Xiu Xiu’s Jamie Stewart, was a restless and daring performer, interrogating the boundaries between jazz, pop, classical, and folk with incredible aplomb. Stewart has similarly excelled at treating genre labels as malleable, constantly positioning his ear for melodic pop against his more avant-garde tendencies, and with Nina, he and his partners have crafted an album in which Simone’s spirit is lovingly refracted through a Xiu Xiu lens. The album kicks off with its.
