Blonde Redhead announce new album Barragán, make all the cool kids say "Bangarang!"

Perhaps best known for their critically acclaimed score work for such eclectic and highly experimental films as TRON, People Under the Stairs, and Three Ninjas Kick Back, post-no-wave New York City power trio Blonde Redhead don’t get around to releasing proper full-length albums all that often. So when they do, it’s a HUGE DEAL to EVERY COOL PERSON EVER. For real. Don’t care? You’re lame.

So yeah, this is one of those huge deal moments. The band has just announced, with all of their typical art-mysticism, that they’ll be releasing a new album, entitled Barragán (huh… must be Japanese?), on the Kobalt Music label come September 2. According to the press release, the new album was produced, engineered, and mixed by Drew Brown (Beck, Radiohead, The Books, Lower Dens, Sandro Perri), was recorded at Key Club Recording in Benton Harbor, Michigan and The Magic Shop in NYC, and is going to be awesome. How awesome?? First-single-streaming-down-below-awesome. Only times ten.
