Warmth is the extraordinary new album from critically acclaimed New York based duo Blondes aka Sam Haar and Zach Steinman whose 10 tracks of mesmerizing, ever shifting rhythmic workouts percolate alongside contemporaries such as Levon Vincent, Joey Anderson and Donato Dozzy. A decade into their musical relationship, the duo continue to find inspiration through hardware instrumentation and improvisation. The duo's intense live performances on sound systems throughout Europe and the US for 2013's Swisher LP and beyond traversed nightclubs, festivals, art museums and DIY spaces serving to generate a wealth of material to be distilled into this album. Warmth finds them further stripping away extraneous elements, pushing their percussive framework to the forefront. The result is lysergic techno fused with Blondes' characteristic synth-work and atmospherics. It's fair to say that Blondes' characteristic hypnotic synth figures, pulsing club ready rhythms and gritty off-kilter sensibility have never felt as fully realized and timely as on Warmth - their most significant and weighty record to date.
