Blonde Redhead

Okay, so I've listened to this band for what seems like ages and have seen them a few times back when I was living in Portland, Oregon. Their new lp, 23, drops on Tuesday. From the song clips I've heard on myspace and their website for the record it sounds like it'll be more on the melodic side- mining the trajectory of Misery Loves a Butterfly- which I completely adored. Of course, I'm old enough to remember when some of my favorite records came out on 4AD in the 90's and early 2000. So I admit my bias...

Anyway, BR are playing a show this Tuesday for free at the Apple Store in SOHO that I think will be pretty special. I'll be otherwise occupied so I can't attend, but someone should then tell me all about it. I saw the Asobi Seksu's show at Apple for the CMJ festival and was impressed by the sound and intimacy of the show + it was the best show I've seen them play, though they were pretty damn good when they played Joe's Pub for the Citrus Release party.

As I recall the poet, Mark Bibbins, was at that show too and agreed it was a fine outing- so there you have it.
