Pitchfork (8.1) - "The Brattleboro, Vt., duo of Sarah Smith and Zach Phillips released several alien-sounding pop records as Blanche Blanche Blanche last year, of them the great and bizarre Wink With Both Eyes via Night People.

Now they've got a new 7" single, "Scam" b/w "Press Dumps" (video here), out via Berlin's Adagio 830. The A-side treads further into the esoteric reaches of their surreal language, recorded to four-track cassette with all instruments triple-tracked.

It's completely devoid of the skeletal keyboards that comprised much of Wink's foundation, instead pairing an anxious, drowned drum march from Phillips with Smith's monotone mantras.

It's guest-guitarist Graham Brooks, though, whose haunted, blown-out solos make the track most peculiar and cinematic-- no doubt emphasized by his closing bit of spoken word, "The best thing about music is all the stuff you can buy."
