Who is this really quite nude Du Blonde lady looking out on a new album on Mute? Why, its Beth Jeans Houghton. On Welcome Back to Milk she has stripped things down a bit, but this is still striking, strong and spiky song-smithery with lashings of aggression. Samuel ‘Future Island’ Herring guests on the big single, Mind is on my Mind.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 5th March 2018
Built around the uniquely powerful voice of Los Angeles via England artist Beth Jeans Houghton (who previously recorded with The Hooves of Destiny) Du Blonde plays songs that move from folky theatre to all-out drum-driven rockers, from love-torn power ballads to rhythmically erratic avant-indie, from quirky X-rated pop to darkly punk-ish rockabilly roots. Houghton’s vocals hold it all together, flying through the songs like a determined songbird on an obstacle course. Brave, unpredictable, weird.
