Blonde Redhead
BLONDE REDHEAD is excited to announce a new album set for 2014 release. Another sonic twist in their already adventurous canon…

Blonde Redhead has always been a band that innovates with each album. They challenge themselves with each recording situation, and the results have been stunning every time. Their music is always inspired by the same emotions, but their tastes and ways they choose to execute those emotions are constantly evolving. It was the early conversations about how to make this record that led the band to work with the up and coming Swedish duo Van Rivers and The Subliminal Kid (Henrik von Sivers and Peder Mannerfelt) as producers on the record. Drew Brown (Radiohead, Beck) also came on board to record the tracks that would eventually be used in Stockholm.

This really marks the first time that the band has worked in such a collaborative manner with their producers. Kazu says “it was a real test – it shook everything up quite a bit”. In fact, they were very much working outside of their comfort level, forced to move into directions that were completely unexpected, with many different opinions in the mix, which led to many challenges along the way. With friction however – there is also great art. And that’s exactly what we have with Penny Sparkle. It’s a truly gorgeous album, one that the band is VERY happy with. Although it took over a year to get there, the completion of the record lifted a huge weight off the band’s shoulders.

The band initially spent 6 months upstate working on the songs for the album. Despite the beauty of their upstate surroundings, there was no escape. Simone said “I wasn’t crazy about being upstate because there is something really sad about it – just being up there, completely secluded – it’s really beautiful, but I had no escape – no friends, and nowhere else to go.” They couldn’t just take a break and go meet friends like they could at home in New York City, so they ended up feeling quite trapped and isolated.
