Blondes, Holly Herndon et al @ Moogfest, April 26

25 April 2014

Blondes, Holly Herndon, Craig Leon and Hieroglyphic Being are playing the RVNG Intl showcase at Asheville, (North Carolina)’s Moogfest on April 26.

It’s part of the five day festival, celebrating the famous analogue synthesiser and running April 23 to 27, where Herndon -who released an update on her vocal processing experiments with ‘Chorus‘ earlier this year -appears on the same bill as record collector, cult DJ and collaborator Hieroglyphic Being.

RVNG is also responsible for a recent re-release of Leon’s classic synthesizer albums Nommos and Visiting with RVNG, as well as Blondes’ surprise new EP Rewire dropped just days ago.

See the Moogfest website for details. **

New Blondes video from Greg Zifcak (+1)

12 July 2013

Blondes’ entire new album Swisher is solid, and so is the YouTube stream by Greg Zifcak. Now, for the Brooklyn duo’s most sturdy beat driven track of the lot, ‘Elise’, the analogue video artist teamed up with friend and sometimes collaborator Will Rahilly for another diaphanous trip through the airwaves, except viewed through the glass and from an angle.

The two artists recently worked on visuals for the breathy computer disco of Safety Scissors together and Rahilly often works with New York neo-psych duo Prince Rama but if you do one thing today, we recommend you check out the latter’s website. **

Greg Zifcak provides visuals for new Blondes stream

27 June 2013

NYC duo Blondes have a new record, Swisher, coming out on RVNG Intl, August 6. True to the name, it’s a sweeping escape into near-ambient electronics that nothing but a distant rhythm keeps grounded in the realms of dance. But what has us even more excited is the accompanying visuals by Greg Zifcak.

As former member of Bay Area’s Eats Tapes, Zifcak takes his analogue fetish to new levels of exploration, creating these gauzy neon dreamscapes, thus maintaining his close association with other staunchly lofi visual artists like Aurora Halal. Listen to the Swisher album stream and see Zifcak’s work below. **
