New Music from Comet Gain

I’ve known this project was in the works for some time, and I’m super excited to bring you all new tunes from one of my most beloved bands, Comet Gain.  You’ll find this new tune, as well as twelve others, on their latest effort, Howl of the Lonely Crowd, which will be released in the US on October 4th by the incredible folks over at What’s Your Rupture.  In my mind, this is one of the most under-appreciated bands in the whole world, as they always have infectious tunes.  Perhaps the fact that Edwyn Collins from OJ helped produce this record will give the group the extra push it needs to be the next big thing in indie pop.  If you love this, and realize you’ve been wrong by ignoring this band for so long, I suggest you go to Whats Your Rupture and order Broken Record Prayers (their last LP) or Cinema Red and Blue (a hot joint featuring Comet Gain and Crystal Stilts members).

New Music from Cinema Red and Blue

Odds are you haven’t heard much about Cinema Red and Blue, yet many of you will be familiar with the players.  The group, which is said to be just a brief project, is comprised of members of jangle-pop darlings The Comet Gain and dark post-punk outfit Crystal Stilts. Upon playing together, they created a beautiful collection of songs that will likely live on in the canon of underground music for years to come. Personally, David Feck’s voice will always hit me right in the heart, and I hope it does the same for you.  The self-titled album will hit stores on September 28th via the hard-working folks over at Whats Your Rupture?.  I can hear this playing around my house for years to come.
