Blonde Redhead - 'Sit Down For Dinner'

8/10

Throughout much of the early 2000s, New York's Blonde Redhead were seen as one of the more innovative names on the indie-rock circuit. Originally grinding away through the mid to late 90s, their cult following quickly became mainstream appeal with their 2004 LP 'Misery Is A Butterfly', a release that would go onto establish them as one of the more enticing and exciting acts of the modern era. And after a suspended break from releasing new material since the 2014 outing 'Barragán', they are back once again with their long-awaited tenth studio album 'Sit Down For Dinner', a record that flows with alluring textures once again.

While their previous material may have come during a more tumultuous time for the trio, 'Sit Down For Dinner' sees them in a renewed and rejuvenated light as they deliver some of their most spellbinding songwriting to date. Keeping the energy and atmosphere of this new full-length as sombre and pensive as possible, they keep the vibrancy alive with a heady mix of technicolour aesthetics and shimmering tones that invite a wonderfully emotive direction from start to finish.

It may be their first new album in nine years, but 'Sit Down For Dinner' shows that they are still brimming with fresh and tantalising ideas at every turn. Mesmerising and enchanting as often as possible, it feels like the beginning of something new and interesting for the band here.
