Local New Yorkers Blonde Redhead are always reliable for a consistent amount of live shows here, but not all of them are free. Which is what they delivered on June 16 as a part of the SummerStage concert series. The show was originally set to take part at Red Hook Park, but moved over to Coffey Park due to construction issues.

Find some shots from their performance posted below, along with the setlist.

Blonde Redhead – Dripping

By Will Oliver, August 22nd 2014

Blonde Redhead - Dripping

On September 2 Blonde Redhead will release their new album Barragán via Kobalt.

The first song to be shared from the album was called “No More Honey.” Since then, they have released a song called “Dripping”, a number that may make you do a double take to make sure that it is indeed a Blonde Redhead song. It features a chill dance groove that is rather pleasant and quite easy on the years. Change isn’t for everyone, but I think it works well for these guys.

Stream “Dripping” below.

Blonde Redhead’s New Album: Penny Sparkle

By Will Oliver, June 24th 2010 — with 2 comments

Last week Blonde Redhead gave us a new song called “Here Sometimes”, but no information regarding where the song came from. That has changed with the announcement of a new album called Penny Sparkle which will include “Here Sometimes”, which will open the album. The album will drop on September 14th via 4AD. Penny Sparkle was recorded in New York & Stockholm, with Van Rivers and the Subliminal Kid getting production credits.

Here is a quote from lead singer Kazu Mazino about the record:

“I can’t say what Penny Sparkle is about just yet. I remember talking to Ed (from 4AD) one day and telling him that I had a vision that I was traveling to far away places to complete it. Then I landed in snowy slippery Stockholm….. and here. I fell in love with the music like falling for someone you’ve known for a long time. It was dreamy and sometimes was very stormy. At times I felt like a shepherd who was trying to herd five stallions into a yard (unsuccessfully). I felt like I was a link to everyone. I remained still and the others were constantly moving around it. I am not sure what Penny Sparkle is but I hope I offered to them as much as they offered me. I know that we have never made a record this way and if I could go back in time, I would do it exactly the same way again.”

[new] Blonde Redhead – Here Sometimes

By Will Oliver, June 21st 2010 — with 1 comment

Earlier today at my internship at Beggars, Blonde Redhead came into the office. Which makes the fact that I’m posting about them now just a little bit strange.

Anyway, Blonde Redhead just put out a new song called “Here Sometimes”. Now word on any official release or inclusion on a EP/LP/Single, but chances are I will somehow find out sooner than later. It’s a dark synth led track that stays mysterious while also showing blissful moments of clarity.

Enjoy the tune:

[new] Blonde Redhead – Not Getting There

By Will Oliver, April 19th 2010 — with 2 comments

Blonde Redhead released a new song titled “Not Getting There” on a 4AD exclusive 12″ EP called Fragments released this past Saturday. The 12″ also included stuff from Gang Gang Dance, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Tune-Yards, and The Big Pink.

Thanks to The Fader, “Not Getting There” is available to download and listen to right now. It’s a spacey track with hidden layers of beauty that some may call Blonde Redheads specialty.

Phantogram @ Samsung 837 (June 16, 2016)

After catching a free outdoor performance Blonde Redhead, I ran over to Manhattan to catch a free performance from Phantogram at the Samsung 837 venue.

Fans with Samsung phones were treated as royalty, with preferred seating close to the stage, and priority entrance. For us Apple casuals, we still got some free bite-sized horderves and some drink tickets (go literally when you get in, otherwise the lines insane). Not to mention a 8-song set from Phantogram, which included the live debut of “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore,” taken from their newly released album.

Find some shots from their performance posted below, along with the setlist.

Stream: Day Wave – Headcase [EP]

By Will Oliver, July 14th 2015 — with 1 comment

Day Wave

Throughout the first half of 2015, Oakland’s Jackson Phillips has kept our attention with his new solo project Day Wave, releasing consistently amazing songs such as “Drag” and “We Try But We Don’t Fit In” that have perfectly captured that timeless summer feeling. Phillips has rounded up these tracks for a nice shiny package that will be released this Friday in the form of his debut EP, Headcase.

He recently released the EP’s closer (and title track) “Headcase,” a melancholiac wonder that leaves your mind in a stunning daze. It rounds out his impressive formative release, proving that Day Wave is one of the brightest up-and-comers in indie rock.

Below you can stream “Headcase” individually, along with the entire EP. If you like what you hear, go and support Day Wave and grab the EP over at iTunes. You can also find upcoming tour dates, which includes opening slots for Blonde Redhead, and a stop at NYC’s Mercury Lounge (tickets are available here).
