Every year, Goose Island teams up with a band on the Pitchfork Music Festival lineup to create a cleverly-named beer that’s served during the three-day Union Park fest. Local rockers Twin Peaks, hip-hop star Chance the Rapper and singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten have been bestowed with the honor in years past, but this time around Texas synthesizer act Survive provided inspiration for the latest Goose Island brew.
To make a beer inspired by the group, Goose Island brewers decided to craft a grapefruit-forward red pale ale, paying tribute to the citrus fruit that is grown in the band’s home state of Texas. Survive didn’t just help name the beer, they also participated in its production. During the brewing process, two members of the band visited the brewery armed with synthesizers and a stack of amps, using the vibrations created by their music to clear the walls of a grist bin.

R&S proudly presents ‘Warmth’ the extraordinary album from critically acclaimed New York based duo Blondes AKA Sam Haar and Zach Steinman whose ten tracks of mesmerising, ever shifting rhythmic workouts percolate alongside contemporaries such as Levon Vincent, Joey Anderson and Donato Dozzy.
A decade into their musical relationship, the duo continue to find inspiration through hardware instrumentation and improvisation. Haar and Steinman’s intense live performances on sound systems throughout Europe and US for 2013’s ‘Swisher’ LP and beyond traversed nightclubs, festivals, art museums and DIY spaces serving to generate a wealth of material album to be distilled into this album.
‘Warmth’ finds them further stripping away extraneous elements, pushing their percussive framework to the forefront. The result is lysergic techno fused with Blondes’ characteristic synth-work and atmospherics.
After parting company with their previous label, the highly respected RVNG Intl. label, the duo find a natural home as part of R&S’s storied alumni as they explain:
“Having released on RVNG for years, we had wanted to move in the direction of releasing on a more dance music focused label. RVNG has established itself in the world of experimental music and reissuing overlooked records from the past, and we both (RVNG and Blondes) thought it would be immensely exciting for us to release this new record with R&S”
It’s fair to say that Blondes’ characteristic hypnotic synth figures, pulsing club-ready rhythms and gritty off-kilter sensibility have never felt as fully realised and timely as on ‘Warmth’ – their most significant and weighty record to date.
