Blonde Redhead has gradually increased in popularity in the underground music scene. Their early music has been described as emulative of Sonic Youth, but their more recent releases have begun to stray from this generalization. Kazu Makino is noted for her high, eerie voice, which hovers over melodic guitar riffs and rhythmic drum beats.
The large span of time between Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons and Misery is a Butterfly is attributed to Makino’s recovery time after being trampled by a horse. Much of Misery Is A Butterfly’s imagery and illustration is equestrian or reflective of the accident. In the liner notes, Makino thanks her doctors “and her friends who fed her and cheered her up when she couldn’t do much on her own.”
The band’s 7th album is called “23” and was released in April 2007.
Their 8th album, “Penny Sparkle” was released in September 14, 2010.
