NNA Tapes has announced the release of Blanche Blanche Blanche's forthcoming LP 'Wooden Ball', due for release March 11. Sarah Smith and Zach Phillips, better known as Blanche Blanche Blanche, we are told, ‘live by the element of risk’. A fact which will resonate to strangers upon listening to their latest full-length record 'Wooden Ball', where the unpredictability reaches palpable levels.

These young masters of harmony from Brattleboro, Vermont have spent the last couple years recording and releasing nearly 10 full-length records worth of good, confounding musical quicksand.  Averaging at just over two minutes each, these songs are both highly calculated, and drenched in paradox. Manic keyboard lines are pounded out with hyper chops, running circles around octopus basslines. Each progression is seemingly different from the last, showing a simultaneous reverence and destruction of the tonal study. Percussion pads are guided by ruthless polyphony at an intense, hummingbird-paced tempo, with lines and melodies colliding at every junction, clashing and crashing. The cutting, topical lyrics and deadpan, bare-bones vocal delivery are wholly original, while undoubtedly fueled by the eternal flame of the punk spirit and DIY ethics. Like most BBB, the LP was lovingly recorded to four-track tape, and will be available on March 11. To get a flavour of what we’re talking about, check out their track ‘Rich Man’ below:

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.
