As one of our most multi-faceted artists, it’s always interesting to hear a new release from Du Blonde, because you’re never quite sure where she’s going to go next. (I’m praying the hints about a forthcoming Happy Hardcore release come true).

Freed from the shackles of record labels and all that yawnsome junk, on Homecoming she sounds gloriously fresh and alive. Calling on a stellar cast of collaborators like Shirley Manson, Andy Bell and Ezra Furman, Du Blonde has delivered a lean, enthralling collection of grungy rock songs, blissfully straddling that line between catchy and weird as well as she ever has. I’ve always felt that Beth Jeans Houghton is a local and national treasure and every new release further entrenches that view.
