While writing Forget, XIU XIU released the lauded Plays the Music of Twin Peaks, collaborated with Mitski on a song for an upcoming John Cameron Mitchell film, and scored an experimental reworking of the Mozart opera, The Magic Flute. All of this frantic, external activity lead to a softly damaged dreaminess and broadened intent that has not been heard before in other Xiu Xiu works. Standout track, “Wondering” is one of the catchiest boogie pop gems in the Xiu Xiu catalog, but like much of Forget, it still bears an underlying tension that manifests differently in each piece. Forget was produced by JOHN CONGLETON (Blondie, Sigur Ros), GREG SAUNIER of DEERHOOF, and Xiu Xiu’s own ANGELA SEO. CD includes a 16-page lyric booklet. LP pressed on limited edition 180-gram light blue vinyl. Both formats include a download.
