CMU Approved

Approved: Blondes (Best Of Approved 2010)

Described by the duo themselves as “ecstatic trance”, Zach Steinman and Sam Haar set about creating their semi-improvised sound in 2008, taking in all manner of experimental electronica genres, as well as a bit of krautrock and half a teaspoon of pop to ensure that the occasional hook appears.

The highlight of their debut EP, ‘Touched’, which was released in June through Merok Records [insert obligatory reference to the label releasing the first singles by Klaxons and Crystal Castles here], is ‘Moondance’. Just shy of twelve minutes in length, it’s easy to lose yourself in the track early on, only to wake up dancing three quarters of the way through.
