Blinker the Star seemed like the prototypical band for the "post-grunge," mainstream alternative-radio format in the mid-to-late '90s, but even a deal with A&M Records didn't garner them significant attention. Front-man Jordan Zadorozny had close ties with a similar-minded band called Failure, of whom Ken Andrews produced Blinker's second album, A Bourgeois Kitten that this single's A-side is derived from. "Bluish Boy," has a wild sense of dynamics, but what really dominates the song is a string-bending, angular guitar riff, that IMHO is naggingly infectious. The flipside of this promo single is a well-executed cover of Stereolab's "Transona 5."
The glittery mylar sleeve, didn't translate well with my scanner, but nevertheless...
