Blonde Redhead - Blonde Redhead Release Free Remix EP
Blonde Redhead : Blonde Redhead Release Free Remix EP
12th July 2011

To coincide with their current tour, Blonde Redhead have today made available a collection of remixes of tracks taken from latest album, Penny Sparkle.

Accumulated over the past nine months following the September release of that record, the six remixes include efforts from an impressive cast of artists. Included amongst them is the Bon Iver-affilated Gayngs with a version of 'Here Sometimes', with a footwork-heavy edit from Becoming Real and the minimal pulse of Pantha du Prince offering different takes on that same track. Salem also provide a typically euphoric blackening of 'Penny Sparkle', while Games showcase their love for the blown-out fringes of 80s R&B on 'My Plants Are Dead'.

Featuring a broad range of sonics and styles all positioned at the cutting edge of new music, taken together the six tracks once again display Blonde Redhead's commitment to stretching their sound in new, intriguing directions.
