The new album from Blonde Redhead is their best album to date. A melancholy slow-moving waltz that is both a delicate and atmospheric melody combined with a heavy sensual drone. This is a welcome progression from their dreamy-pop on their previous album 23.

    Hey there Rachel! This is really ‘pretty’, if that’s the right word. Kazu’s vocals are just gorgeous and very atmospheric and haunting music as well. It’s a step forward for them, for sure. So, will add this album to the growing list of those filed under the ‘to buy’ checklist. Hope you are doing well.
