Favorite track: Coffee Machine.
Du Blonde may sound like a band, but in fact it is, and always has been, the work of just one person. Beth Jeans Houghton.
Her new album delves even deeper into self sufficiency, seeing Beth take the reigns on production, instrumentation, album artwork and direction of music videos. This project is entirely her own.
Lung Bread For Daddy veers wildly between genres reminiscent of proto-punk, psych rock and the whole- some song writing of the 1970’s, taking the listener on a journey through the landscape of her past. It is an honest and often uncomfortable look into the life of a person who’s experiences have been touched by a myriad of characters, homes across continents, periods of extreme loneliness, mental illness and a search for an understanding of personal identity.
Album opener ‘Coffee Machine’ sees Du Blonde sitting in a room, surrounded by material gifts, but ultimately alone. ‘I’d rather have the man than the coffee machine’ she sings of her desire for human connection, before releasing a howl of rage and a guitar riff so heavy it could only be the sound of a person within the grips of emotional agony.
For all of the seriousness of Lung Bread For Daddy, Du Blonde’s notorious humour, often employing the un- comfortable and grotesque, has not been subdued. From bloody sheets, pubic hair and apathy towards dating, she remains blunt and unforgiving.
We first met Beth at 18, filled with a desire for creation, travel, adventure and experience. Lung Bread For Daddy is Beth at 28. She has created, travelled and experienced for 10 years straight, she has lived between London and Los Angeles, spent 5 months sleeping on a plastic air mattress during 100 degree heat, road tripped across the united states with strangers, endured a nervous breakdown, yielded to psychiatric medication, endured both positive and abusive relationships and learnt from both. She has documented it all in Lung Bread For Daddy.
