B londe Redhead's last album - Misery Is A Butterfly - established them once and for all as one of the most distinctive and precious bands of their generation. It was a confident, thrilling and delicately-nuanced sweep of sound which enraptured the already-converted and won the band a whole new legion of fans. And although it marked a modulation away from the bittersweet starkness of previous releases, it was by far the most commercially successful release of the band's career, continuing a steady upward trajectory, which started well over a decade ago.
Their sound spans a variety of genres and is still evolving, but the thing that seems to remain constant is their dedication to experimentation and abstraction. That they happen to have been released consecutively is probably not a coincidence, but these are the albums that have stuck with me. The Adobe Flash Player is required for video playback.

The opening title track, too, tosses an early curve: its introduction is pure eighties alternative rock, all drifting drones and blooded bombast — a comparison to the always referenced, often wrongly, My Bloody Valentine, would not be misplaced.
