On today's episode I talk to musician Jamie Stewart. Born and
raised in Los Angeles, Jamie played in a number of bands as a
teenager, including a parody band and a Bauhaus cover group.
However, he didn't really find his voice until he formed Xiu Xiu in
his mid-20s. The release of the band's first album Knife Play
on the Kill Rock Stars imprint 5RC cemented their style, but it was
with 2004's Fabulous Muscles that the band really started to break
through. Since then, Xiu Xiu has recorded and released another nine
albums, toured the world, and their latest album Oh No, was just
released at the end of March on Polyvinyl!
