XXL, the collaborative project of Xiu Xiu and Larsen, announce new album

Xiu Xiu and Larsen's collaborative group XXL have announced details of their fourth album, Puff O'Gigio. Above, you can check out lead track 'Queen of Koalas'.

The album takes its name from what's described as a "mythological, genetically modified character - a cross between the notorious Belgian 2-apple sized blue creatures and the equally popular Italian talking and dancing mice". The album explores this fantasy character as well as themes of feminist art, fetishes and alternative ecosystems.

The album was written and recorded in a single week in Italy. It will be released via Bad Paintings on December 7.
