The duo of Sam Haar and Zach Steinman don't make much in the way of distinctions between music for the body and music for the mind. The Brooklyn-based electronic musicians' 2010 Touched EP drew deeply from other heady ravers like the Orb and, going further back, pioneering German maestro Manuel Gottsching. Now, Blondes' self-titled debut full-length, out February 7 on RVNG, finds the outfit staying wonderfully within that trippy tradition, with its blend of starry synth ripples and gut-level rhythm patterns. If you've ever wondered what music would be best to play during a dance party inside eternity's womb, well, wonder no more. Listen exclusively here:
