Album Review

Future Blondes – “Feather 17” – [Blind Prophet Records]

cinder   11/16/2012   12-inch, A Library

With instruments such as ghost synth and silver machines, this group has a futuristic vibe to their tripped out vision. Lovers of the abstract, black and white art, Future Blondes are Domokos, some Crutchers, a System, and Synb. I’m going to pretend their robots. Starting out with a hazed out ghost moan with subtle ear-piercing frequencies, it soon transforms into a badass, dark gothic dance beat. The kind that you picture Zuul and The Keymaster doing the dirty to. A modern take on 80s electro dance. I prefer the whole thing on 33, but I realize it’s probably meant for 45rpm, dammit I can’t tell – choose your own adventure. The second is a side-long of rhythmic, head jerking pulses with an atmospheric wind tying it together, ending with some twinkling, celestial nebulas. It has a beat… and you can grind to it.
