Your art-creep uncles favorite T-shirt still writes a fantastic rock song. Local no-wave trio Blonde Redhead have softened from angular art-psych to mewling, labyrinthine shoegaze since forming in 95 (when they met serendipitously in an Italian restaurant), but they still retain the frosty elements of their modernist cool: Former art student Kazu Makino cries jumbled couplets in the troposphere, which arent lyrics so much as conduits to emotions and hues, and twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace determinedly detonate pop-friendly refrains into foreign, scattered shards. If their upcoming eighth album even approaches the gorgeous depths of 2004s Misery Is a Butterfly, the cannoli is on us!
