Performer Notes
  • Audio Mixer: Alan Moulder.
  • Recording information: DNA, NYC; Sear Sound, NYC; The Magic Shop, NYC.
  • On their third album for 4AD, Blonde Redhead venture in even more eclectic directions. The trio teamed up with longtime producer Alan Moulder -- who also helped My Bloody Valentine achieve an epic shoegaze sound -- and Van Rivers and the Subliminal Kid, traveling between New York and Stockholm to work with these producers. Songs such as "Here Sometimes" prove the band's music is just as capable of journeying between crystalline electronics and cathedrals of dreamy guitars.

Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (p.112) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "PENNY feels both sculpted and spontaneous....'Here Sometimes' and the aptly named 'My Plants Are Dead' showcase vocalist/bassist Kazu Makino's suffocated shoegaze sweetness."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.90) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] masterclass in elegiac navel gazing, a record that could comfortably sit beside Talk Talk or The Knife..."

Paste (magazine) - "These songs crawl -- sometimes ominously, other times seductively -- carried by understated beats, while Kazu Makino's vocals float over it all like the memory of a departed loved one."

Uncut (magazine) (p.87) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Cocteau Twins, MBV and Angelo Badalamenti are obvious touchstones for the narcotised, heat-haze beauty of PENNY SPARKLE..."
