Blonde Redhead are a New York (by way of Japan, Canada, and Italy) indie rock trio fronted by Kazu Makino and twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace. The band performs in several languages including English, Japanese, Italian, and French and have been compared to Sonic Youth.
Their upcoming album, Penny Sparkle is set to be released on 9/14/2010. Lead vocalist, Kazu Makino had this to say about the album:
“I fell in love with the music like falling for someone you’ve known for a long time. It was dreamy and sometimes was very stormy. At times I felt like a shepherd who was trying to herd five stallions into a yard (unsuccessfully). I felt like I was a link to everyone. I remained still and the others were constantly moving around it. I am not sure what Penny Sparkle is but I hope I offered to them as much as they offered me. I know that we have never made a record this way and if I could go back in time, I would do it exactly the same way again.”
