    Thao Nguyen and The Get Down Stay Down have both been selected as supporting acts for Xiu Xiu's spring tour. The trek—Xiu Xiu's first as a quartet—hits the ground walking on March 7 in Portland and winds down in San Fran on April 12. Xiu Xiu's sixth album, Women as Lovers, arrives in your friendly neighborhood record store on January 29. Longtime fans are urged to preorder, however, as the first 2000 online/independent shop discs will come bundled with a DVD called What's Your Problem?

    Specific details of the disc are unknown at this time, but Pitchfork claims it'll have at least 16 music videos ("Muppet Face," "Sad Pony Guerilla Girl," oh my!) and some tour footage. If that's not exciting enough for you, the iTunes version will include an EP of exclusive bonus tracks including a collaboration with Eugene Robinson of Oxbow ("Juarez").
