Blonde Redhead - Barragán  [Album]
Kobalt Label Services / BLDE001CD / CD
MP3 / V0 (VBR)
The band's newest record, Barragán, is one of the freshest in their acclaimed catalogue, taking Blonde Redhead down yet another new sonic path nine records into their career. This is a band whose name has been built on the endless evolution of their own aural dynamics, and in that respect, Barragán does not disappoint.
It is the most stark, elemental, stripped back album Blonde Redhead has ever made, relying on shivers of analogue keyboard twists and the off-kilter, slinky rhythms of drummer Simone Pace to carry the voices of singers/guitarists Kazu Makino and Amadeo Pace, two of the most distinct voices in independent music. These songs are some of the most sensual, serendipitous, sparse recordings to come from Blonde Redhead, showcasing a completely new side to the three songwriters, and marking Barragán as that crucial next sonic step forward for one of New York City's most important bands of the last two decades.
