Sal Mineo, the project of Eugene Robinson (Oxbow) and Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu), welcomed their debut album, Xiu Xiu & Eugene Robinson Present: Sal Mineo, back in April via Important Records. The 24-track LP features Robinson's Tom Waits-esque poetry over clattering compositions by Stewart. You can take a listen to the album in its entirety at the bottom of this post.

The duo will be playing a couple of U.S. shows surrounding their appearance at the 2013 Hopscotch Music Festival. One of those gigs is a performance at Lincoln Hall on September 7. Tickets for the Chicago show are on sale now.
