“Xiu Xiu create some of the most confrontational, abrasive, disturbing, yet exciting music in the world of contemporary indie rock. Jamie Stewart continues to lead the way with his emotionally husky voice and grim tales that tackle painful topics such as rape, suicide, and self-abuse. Greg Saunier (also of Deerhoof) offers his multi-instrumental talents and production wizardry, crafting ambitious synth-heavy beats to match Stewart’s complex narratives. The The Air Force is undeniably an exhilarating record, and one of Xiu Xiu’s most accessible thus far.” – Alex Ruder, KEXP
