Blonde Redhead – “The One I Love”

By Tom Breihan / August 13, 2014

It’s been 19 years since the sexy and mysterious New York-based indie rockers Blonde Redhead released their first album; we’re lucky that they’re still around and still operating at such a high level. The band’s new album Barragán is due next month, and they’ve already shared two of its songs, “No More Honey” and “Dripping.” The third, “The One I Love,” is not an R.E.M. cover; instead, it’s a piece of oblique and minimal chamber-pop, a cryptic sigh built from harpsichords and kettle-drum thonks and Kazu Makino’s inimitable purr. Listen below.
