Music x 3: Xiu Xiu, Pissed Jeans, Beach House, The Magnetic Fields

1. Xiu Xiu has a new album out (Always); the video for the lead single, “Hi,” is pretty great:

2. It is not, however, as great as the video for Pissed Jeans’s “False Jesii Part 2,” which I only recently discovered:

3. The new Beach House single, “Myth,” is a secret cover of “Eyes Without a Face.”

4. Stephin Merritt, may I suggest the formal constraint for your next album?

       Music is so great.

      3. I’d say it’s a not-so-secret cover of Eyes Without a Face. Either way, dreamy good.

      Yeah, the more I listen to it, the more obvious it gets. Although I don’t think they say it anywhere…? But as I typed “secret cover” was thinking, “there’s got to be a better term for that than this.” Unacknowledged cover? Unofficial cover?

      I like it, btw. Though not as much as “Eyes Without a Face,” which is such a classic…

      I like the end rhymes.

      Pissed Jeans rules, and one of them used to be a professional wrestler in the Philly area.
