Blender Theory

by Beloved Binge

"Eleni Binge's time shifts behind the drum kit and Rob Beloved's serpentine-note guitar lines suggest a certain affinity for math rock. But perfection and precision are subsumed by an overarching playfulness." --Independent Weekly

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"On Beloved Binge's second album, Blender Theory, the former Seattle band still sounds like a cross between Pacific Northwest stables at Up! and K. But it's difficult to recall anyone sounding exactly like this.

The bulk of Blender Theory is just beyond mid-tempo, using slightly cynical retellings of relationship troubles and social declarations for pep-pop acquitted of its quest for perfection. It's convoluted but somehow comfortable.

Eleni Binge's time shifts behind the drum kit and Rob Beloved's serpentine-note guitar lines suggest a certain affinity for math rock. But perfection and precision are subsumed by an overarching playfulness. A song about factory farming shaped by a razor-wire electric guitar and tumbles of fills ("Heartburn") leads a beautiful, chiming number that wraps dusk-dream nostalgia in Yo La Tengo harmony ("Sunday Stopped Honking")..." --Grayson Currin, Music Editor, Independent Weekly


Recent Press

" ...upbeat, stripped-down and muffed-out indie-pop rock. Taking turns strumming, humming and drumming (while swiping pages from the K Records playbook) Rob Beloved and Eleni Binge conjure up happy memories of indie rock's fun-loving and far less pretentious past..." --Adam Leech, Colorado Springs Independent (Reverb)


"With a sound as infectious as this, Beloved Binge can keep on singing about Lordonlyknowswhat and people will still be listening.....What’s most striking about this album, however, is that no matter how absurd the lyrics get...the more you want to listen.” --Duluth Budgeteer


"Intelligent, inventive, amusing..." --VivaIndieBlog


"Beloved Binge nailed it: Twisted, lo-fi indie homage with just enough mad science and tongue-in-cheek irony...The band services up a stereophonic celebration of jangly off-kilter guitars in the vein of They Might Be Giants, The Flying Lizards, B-52's, etc., that accent tight, catchy little pop songs ..." --Jersey Beat

“Catch BELOVED BINGE, too: Rob Beloved and Eleni Binge hit the road soon for a year, and, in the Durham duo's absence, we'll lose a K Records/ Teen Beat blend of generous hooks and captivating quirks. Songs about MySpace couples come backed with the struggle to like people, and shifting time signatures springboard from trebly, staccato riffs.” -- Chris Parker, Independent Weekly

"Sitting behind the drumkit, Binge not only sets the rhythm but sings, plays keyboards and plays guitar. Like her own motion, Beloved Binge songs are busy, using shifting rhythm and keys and two different verses sometimes sung at once." ---Bryan Reed, Independent Weekly
