From Tallahassee to Berlin to Tallahassee to Berlin, Kevin Blechdom and Sonig team up to release an acoustic record chock full of palpitating love songs. The album is lyrical, lush, and direct, with emotion of epic proportions.  Gentlemania was recorded at La Frette Studios in Paris and Heavysheet Studios in Berlin, and was co-produced and co-written with Blechdom's good friend Mocky. The collaboration benefits from Mocky's nurturing qualities that contrast, calm, and frame Blechdom's intrinsic chaos.   As the title suggests, Gentlemania is not as schizophrenic or madcap manic as her previous two electronic albums. Instead, Blechdom slows down, takes a deep breath, and, with thoughtful control, peels back layers of emotion for the listener to hear. Combining a strong background in classical and experimental music with a broad knowledge of pop styles, Blechdom travels between and coalesces country jangle, Broadway show tunes, old-school R&B, and many other styles into a cohesive and true musical story. The autobiographical and interpersonal themes revolve around introspection, longing, doubt, hope, and ultimately, human transformation.  Kevin Blechdom is Kristin Erickson from Stuart, Florida. Her last two albums, Eat My Heart Out (2005), and Bitches Without Britches (2003) were released on Chicks on Speed Records. Prior to that she was in Blectum From Blechdom, an electronic music duo based in San Francisco that released albums on Tigerbeat6, Orthlorng Musork, Phthalo, and Deluxe Records, and won an Award of Distinction for digital music at the Prix Ars Electronica. She has also released albums on Shimmy Disc with Adult Rodeo, and has just released a live banjo album with Eugene Chadbourne on Victo Records. Blechdom spent 2008 completing her MFA degree in Electronic Music at Mills College.
