Critical Jargon: Floating like a butterfly, stinging like a broken heart, this artful trio crafts and hones increasingly breathtaking filigrees of rock with each new album. Their latest is always their greatest, and Amadeo, Kazu and Simone's current batch of lush, opulent sonic journeys is no exception. Blonde Redhead's appearance marks a triumphant return to this year's Siren Music Festival after an unfortunate cancellation in 2002 due to injury.
Quoth the Band Member: "We've tried to say, 'Let's write a song in a major key,' and we've managed a couple things, but it doesn't really happen." - Amadeo Pace, vocals, guitar, baritone guitar
