Xiu Xiu recently gained two new members and have been working on their follow-up album to last year’s Dear God I Hate Myself but now they’re releasing a single called “Daphny” dedicated to a close friend of theirs “who—following an arrest for shoplifting—was raped by an officer while in police custody.” Yikes. The B-side is a cover of Rihanna’s “Only Girl in the World.” The 7″ is up for preorder now at Polyvinyl.

The group also remixed a track by Parenthetical Girls, as part of a free remix EP (Parenthetical Girls singer Zac Pennington is part of Xiu Xiu’s new line-up). Grab that for the price of an e-mail here.
