ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Electronic noir lightens up in the hands of Hitchcock Blonde. Their world music inspired sound is equally indebted to the sunshiny grooves of Jack Johnson. These mysterious strangers will have you singing in the shower." --Editor's Review, Download.com

"Faultless!!! Music for the 21st Century...this just groooooves man..." --sputnik2, Garageband.com

"This record comes wrapped in an eye-catching sleeve a cover of a scantily clad blonde. Not so much a Hitchcock blonde (they had more clothes) as a pinup blonde. The music's funky and catchy, the frontman Kerr comes across as Beck meets Jamiroquai. "ETI" (which is a cover of a Blue Öyster Cult song, written by Donald Roeser and Sandy Pearlman) has plenty of wah-wah guitars and a backing vocal by the sweet-voiced Janna Audey that appeals to me. "Taking Flight" is weirdly like Beloved, all blissed-out singing and happy vibes. "The Man With the Flower in His Mouth" is equally sweet, summer of love vibes being felt. The vocals are soulful and oddly plaintive.

The album ends with covers of Lou Reed's "Satellite of Love" and Holly Vincent's "Rock Against Romance". They both work fine, with Audey singing lead on the latter song. It's an unusual, multi-faceted collection of music this one." --Anna Maria Stjärnell, LunaKafe.com

"Electronic pop that boasts alternative rock guitars and lofty hooks, “Soul Button” by Washington DC area band Hitchcock Blonde is a thrifty listen rarely wasting a note or verse. Featuring Kowtow Popof, whom Smother has featured prior, the band eagerly delivers addictive riffs and fun upbeat tempos. The percussive elements are very earthy and feel close to world music. Good stuff." --Smother Magazine

Hitchcock Blonde, the DC Metro area's premier "Electronic Noir" outfit and 2002 Wammie nominee, has been practicing the dark art of digital audio data stream generation, capture and manipulation since October 2000.
