It'll be cracking my top 15 or so. Chillwave with a backbone: sounds pretty good to me.

I'm curious, of the greater than 100 albums from 2010 that you've listened to this year, how many of them have you listened to more than once?

Probably 30 or 40.

EDIT: Ha, I may be dismissive, but I care enough to keep track in my head. 37.

Just know that even on an essential Xiu Xiu recording, there will be at least one song which is so dreadful , upsetting, and powerfully off-putting that it will turn your stomach. You've been warned. I'm looking at you, "Walnut House" and friends.
warning taken, although i get that impression from the 20 or so songs i youtube'd. yeah, they've got some intentionally fucked up shit. if i am capable of being disturbed or upset, this might actually be a good thing. honestly, "frankie teardrop" is the only song that's ever come close to truly scaring me and that was cos i did exactly what you're not supposed to do--listen to it in a dark room, alone, with headphones--back when i might have still had some semblance of a soul.

That's a great, great, great song, but I don't think I even listen to it once a year, anymore.

I don't think Dalton's ever seen it either. He doesn't usually like to watch his own work.

Kind of. It's not a hard J, though.

And NSW is not talented enough to have a band.
