iTunes Review

Nineteen years into their career, Blonde Redhead haven't just seriously altered their own sound over the years; they’ve watched their audience grow up, with some replaced by newer fans at their shows. Anyone who remembers Blonde Redhead's early days recalls the constant comparisons to Sonic Youth; the listeners who hung in watched the band redefine their sound in the ‘00s with excellent albums such as Misery Is a Butterfly and 23. 2010’s Penny Sparkle divided audiences with its accessible pop sound, but Barragan should please fans from nearly all eras. Kazu Makino sings with gorgeous affection on “The One I Love” and with exquisite power throughout, while twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace provide a tension and beauty that’s pure art rock—and in some case Krautrock (“Mind to Be Had”). The trio’s ability to settle into minimalist and denser, abstract territories, largely guided by synths as opposed to guitars, has refreshed them to the point of pained ecstasy.

Cat on a tin roof and dripping are the most entertaining early on, but Blonde Redhead needs to be listen too many times to totally appreciate the songs.


Formed: 1993 in New York, NY

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Moving from Sonic Youth-like art punk to eclectic pop over the course of their decades-long career, Blonde Redhead remained one of indie rock's most creative acts. The band formed in 1993 after Japanese art students Kazu Makino and Maki Takahashi randomly met Italian twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace at an Italian restaurant in New York. (The name was taken from a song by the '80s no wave band DNA.) With Makino and Amedeo on guitars and vocals, Simone on drums, and Takahashi on bass, the band's...
