- Release Date:2/22/2011
2011 sophomore album from the American Electronic Pop outfit. Herc main man Andy Butler has shifted the focus gently away from the New York House and Disco forms of the debut; relocating to Denver and recording the album in Vienna with Techno producer Patrick Pulsinger. Herc mainstay Kim Ann Foxman returns on vocals, and is joined in starring roles by Venezuelan singer Aerea Negrot, fan-turned-collaborator Shaun Wright and Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), Blue Songs sees Bulter broaden his musical palette - "There's definitely jacking House and there's definitely even more full-blown Disco, but there's also more experimental, softer music" he explains.
