Provided to YouTube by Beggars Group Misery Is a Butterfly Blonde Redhead Misery Is A Butterfly 2004 4AD Ltd Released on: 2004-02-23 Composer: Amedeo. Album 2004 11 Songs. Misery Is a Butterfly Blonde Redhead. Redhead formed in the virtual racial melting pot of New York Citys mean streets. The band consists of two twin Italian immigrants, Simone and Amadeo Pace and Japanese punk Kazu Makino. Over the years leading up to their epic, 4AD LP Blonde had been unleashing their Noise rock explosion on the east coast underground via various indie labels. For me when I hear Misery is a Butterfly I picture a great Japanese beast, shot through the leg, but soldiering on through the bamboo forests leaving trails of colored blood. For other people it may be different, but I think all must agree, MIABF is original, powerful and trippy. Three things that should be put together more often. Misery Is A Butterfly' is Blonde Redhead's fifth album and their first on label 4AD released in 2004. It took longer for this band to put this album togetherKazu had a accident - but what I have heard from BR - this is their Best work to date, even compared to their newest release in 2007 23- This one here is full of charm with it's wonderful strings, gorgeous instrumental flourishes and keyboards. Blonde Redhead has found their true sound with 'Misery Is A Butterfly' - Darkly romantic and atmospheric, a kind of sadness in some ways. If you are new. Misery Is a Butterfly.

Blonde Redhead have long been maligned as self-consciously artsy, drawing facile comparisons to Sonic Youth and a host of No-Wave acts- references that owe as much to their bandname's tribute to a DNA song as to Blonde Redhead's often discordant noise-rock. That rhetoric, of course, should've been shelved after the release of Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons. I only felt I should mention it again because, apparently, many of their party-line detractors never got the me. Songs in album Blonde Redhead - Misery Is a Butterfly 2004.

Reverb is a rarity the album never descends into noise or any musical chaos but is characterized by a meticulous, tuned, or even dreamy sound. It took me a few listens to become accustomed to the high pitched style of the vocalists, but once settled in it works nicely across the whole album, giving the tracks a consistency throughout. The closing two tracks break the mold a bit the fluttering keyboards in the opening of Pink Love, and Equus which looks to be the next single coming close to rockin'

Blonde Redhead have emerged from a cocoon and developed a new moody sound- it's a sound worth hearing! It is thoroughly melodic, chorus laden deliberate guitar lines and keyboards border on the ethereal, conveying what can only be described as well planned ominous emotion. Reverb is a rarity; the album never descends into noise or any musical chaos but is characterized by a meticulous, tuned, or even dreamy sound.

The closing two tracks break the mold a bit; the fluttering keyboards in the opening of Pink Love, and Equus which looks to be the next single coming close to rockin'. Equus is the only song on the album that comes to mind when I hear others compare them to Sonic Youth.
Definitively Blonde Redhead is superior band is their ability to evolve. If you trace their last 4-5 albums you'll see a distinct history of musical growth. Their albums are not predictable, they don't sound samey, and they aren't immediately accessible. Good music grows on you and that's what this album does and that's what this band is doing.
