Live: Blonde Redhead @ Kyttaro Club (Athens, March 5, 2015)

It's been nearly a decade since Blonde Redhead's first visit to Athens, but last Thursday the wait was finally over for their fans. 

The New York trio presented its ninth album, "Barragán", to a packed, smoke filled, Kyttaro Club, but did not neglect its illustrious past either. Tracks like "Violent Life" and "Bipolar" took us back to the second half of the '90s, when Blonde Redhead were following the noisy path of Sonic Youth, while "Falling Man", "Spring and by Summer Fall" or the anthemic "23", which closed their 90-minute set, reminded us of their more melodic, dream pop days of the '00s, certainly the band's most accomplished period.

The highlights from their new material, which looks more to electronic music for inspiration, included "Dripping" and "No More Honey", However, the clips we have for you from the show come from their older work; check out below "Bipolar", one of the top moments of Blonde Redhead's performance, as well as "Falling Man":
