Blondes Announce And Release New Album 'Swisher' Released August 20th 2013

After rehauling their gear and settling into a new studio space, Blondes' busy year ended in an intensely focused production period during which Haar and Steinman sculpted the boldly detailed Swisher.
 
Swisher unfolds as a series of mini-epics rather than a string of banging cuts. Still, the allegiance to the groove remains absolute. Percussive elements are most notably honed on Swisher, drawing a sharp contrast between the rich timbres and vaporous synth sounds that seep throughout the album. Centerpiece "Andrew" and closer "Elise" enhance the melodic concerns of Blondes early material, mantled now in a maturity that favors gradual force.

This cosmic scope aligns Blondes not only with the German synth masters of the 70s (who have been a guiding inspiration for the duo since the onset), but also the slow burning dub techno of later day Germany - though ramped up several bpms.

Blondes' Swisher is out now digitally and will be released on August 20th as a limited edition 2xLP and CD.
