This song literally sent a chill down my spine the first time I heard it. Whether it’s the ethereal instrumentation, or Kazu Makino’s delicate, frigid vocals that caused this reaction, I’m not not sure, but this is an amazing song. The production fits the song perfectly, with a distant melody playing to such lyrics as “don’t let the dress trick you, I love you less now that I know you.” Incredible. The Dress is from Blonde Redhead’s new album, 23, due out on April 10th.
