Blondes (RVNG Intl, Merok, NYC)
Meeting at Ohio's Oberlin College and founding their collaboration on a mutual love of (whisper it) jamming and DFA, Zach Steinman and Sam Haar had been honing their skills in the Brooklyn nightlife and basement studios by the time they released their first record on Merok. A series of conceptual records for RVNG Intl followed in 2011, reflecting their journey towards a sound that, while relying on loops and patterns, allows them to flex their improvisational muscle and work off their mutual love of everything from early German electronic music to Italo sounds and the outer reaches of prog rock. In this Headphone Highlights show for Red Bull Music Academy Radio Blondes talk us through some of their favourite tracks of all time. Inspiration information!
