10. No More Honey (Barragán, 2014)

“Well, this was a surprise! After a decade of lush cinematic pop, Blonde Redhead hybridize the beauty of that sound with the comparatively abrasive guitar action found in their 90’s work. Yeah, it kinda has a “Dazed and Confused” figure that most old farts will find a bit tired but, overall, it’s refreshing to hear the band do an unexpected sonic change up this late in their career. Excited to hear where the album goes!”

9. The One I Love (Barragán, 2014)

“Beautiful song, Love the ending as well, the muse has played the song, and as if wakening from a dreamlike state we gradually get back to normal perception… the sounds of the city, the sounds of our everyday lives. Wonderful, loved it!”

8. Cat On Tin Roof (Barragán, 2014)

“This is such a special song, would die to hear it live! Sounds like it was all done in one session as well! Incredible.”

7. Equus (Misery Is a Butterfly, 2004)

“The riff sounds like that one song from the late 1960’s (Vanilla Fude, more then the Supremes version of You Keep me hanging on), I will think of it later just forgot off the top of my head. The singing is very melodic, catchy and sort of reminds me of the girl from the Go Team, this is top of the line Indie pop music. A masterpiece of 60’s meets the Indie scene. Much love Blonde Redhead”

6. Messenger (Misery Is a Butterfly, 2004)

“To me it seems that this guy is singing about how difficult it is being a messenger. all those letters you’ve got to deliver, all those people expecting so much of you, so many jealous hands longing to find out what’s in those letters…But you get nothing instead. Why can’t you keep anything to yourself? Might sound banal but that’s what I think.”

5. Dr. Strangeluv (23, 2007)

“I think there’s deeply imbedded in the song a feeling of appreciation for being around others, but maybe from some distance, but I don’t think that distance is intentional, it’s more circumstantial, like something inevitable. And this what I think this is about. It’s about relationships and how the fluctuate over time.”

4. Misery Is A Butterfly (Misery Is a Butterfly, 2004)

“You wouldn’t expect something this powerful from a pair of vocalist whose tones fit somewhere between whiny and nasal, but amid the complex layers of rhythms, something magical emerges. Blonde Redhead has achieved something unique with this album. There is certainly nothing else like it in my music library.”

3. Melody (Misery Is a Butterfly, 2004)

“It paints the scene of a person standing in their kitchen staring at letters from their recently-jailed loved one, who out of the clear blue sky had apparently been struggling with something serious enough to murder someone over. But there was no indication of any problem at all up until to the arrest and subsequent trial.”

2. 23 (23, 2007)

“They go for a lighter, poppier sound in this outing but it’s still great. It manages to be catchy and pop-like, yet beautiful. A great summer album. Some people have dismissed it as too commercial sounding but I’m not put off by its accessibility at all. A very “pretty” album, and I mean that in a good way.”

1. Elephant Woman (Misery Is a Butterfly, 2004)

“This was the first song I ever heard by this band and it blew me away. I was utterly unprepared for such musical brilliance. The vocals in this song are incredible, but fortunately, that’s something I’ve grown to expect from Blonde Redhead. It rocks.”
