On 16 September 2013, Portland band Blouse will return with second album ‘Imperium’, which, by all accounts, sees the band doing something different.

For their eponymous debut LP of 2011, the North Western trio peddled the whole vintage drum machine ‘n’ synth thing, sounding like an 80s band from some austere city in Britain. ‘No Shelter’ (below) is the first track to come from the new album and marks a the arrival of Blouse MKII – something closer to The Velvet Underground. Check it out.
