Blonde Redhead - Blonde Redhead 'Penny Sparkle' Out Now, Touring Now
Blonde Redhead : Blonde Redhead 'Penny Sparkle' Out Now, Touring Now
15th September 2010

‘Here Sometimes’ taken from their forthcoming 4AD Session.

"A significant, evocative force 15 years into its career." MAGNET

"The band's most breathtaking album to date." VENUS (5/5)

"Atmospheric, dream-induced-electro-indie-pop continues the band's progression towards the perfect hipster lullaby." FILTER

"An icy masterclass in how synths should sound." NME (8/10)

"This record is wondrous." Time Out (4/5)

Blonde Redhead’s new album, Penny Sparkle, is out now. Made over the last year between New York and Stockholm, the band worked with production duo Van Rivers and The Subliminal Kid (see also Fever Ray and Glasser), Penny Sparkle shows the band shedding another skin, adding a glacial elegance to their arsenal.

The accompanying artwork was designed by long-time collaborators Stefanie and David from Triboro Design. In addition to the CD and vinyl versions, Penny Sparkle has also been made available as a deluxe, limited edition boxset version. This is ONLY available to buy from independent record stores while stocks last.

The band are now in Europe touring and after that, will be playing a handful of shows in China before returning to their adopted home of the US for a large tour of North America. See below or click here
