Xiu Xiu - "You'd Be So Nice" & "Just Say I Love Him"


With September's "Don't smoke in bed," Xiu Xiu gave us our first glimpse at its upcoming Graveface Records debut Nina, a collection of 11 Nina Simone covers done in the style of free jazz. Since then, the band has shared two more tracks from the project, "Just Say I Love Him" and "You'd Be So Nice." The former, which actually has a discernible, catchy groove, can be streamed via the Soundcloud widget below; and the latter, the noisiest offering so far, is accompanied by a classy minimalist music video that can be watched above. Enjoy!

Nina is slated for release December 3.
