Blondes Releases New Album via RVNG; Hear It Now
- Words: Leo Maymind
RVNG-affiliated Brooklyn duo Blondes is back with a new album which is available today as a digital package. Blondes has always emphasized the humanistic side of electronic music, letting hardware and improvisational recording guide the building of its tracks, and the new Swisher LP—which can be purchased here—sees the band continuing to indulge its cosmic tendencies, as the throb of dark techno and the hypnotic drive of early krautrock inform the expansive music. Below, producers Sam Haar's and Zach Steinman's new album can be streamed in full, before a limited-edition physical release drops on August 20 via RVNG. Blondes' upcoming tour dates can also be found below.
