This Song Is A Mess But So Am I - Church Point, L.A.
this guy makes music that is, in more ways than one, similar to Xiu Xiu's noisier outings. the vocals in particular sound a lot like Jamie Stewart. however, he distances himself from Xiu Xiu's often chiptune-oriented works by making Church Point, L.A. noisy and similar to IDM, albeit simpler. the vocals are not the only part of the music similar to Xiu Xiu, though. this album creates an often frightening and always depressing atmosphere, due to the artist creating music to cope with his mother's death.
