Blonde Redhead is one of those bands that has existed in my peripheral musical vision for a while. I even remember downloading & listening to several tracks at some point, but it must not have been love at first sight because those downloads are nowhere to be found.
All that may change with the band’s upcoming album, 23. If this title track is any indication, 23 combines what I love most about Asobi Seksu, My Bloody Valentine & Curve: dreamy vocals, symphonic guitars and zesty melodies. Man, I should be writing for Spin or something.
