CINEMA RED & BLUE
BUTTERBEAN CRYPT EP (FORTUNA POP!)
Limited Edition Vinyl 10" (Spooky Black with white marble effect, 500 copies only).. The Butterbean Crypt EP is a special Halloween release from Cinema Red and Blue, an indiepop supergroup featuring members of both Comet Gain and Crystal Stilts.
Strictly limited to 500 copies on 10" vinyl, it's pressed on spooky black vinyl with a white marble effect.
Lead track Walkin' To The Cemetery is a Cinema Red & Blue original that comes on like a Nuggets garage original, replete with 60s organ and scary screams.
The EP also contains two covers, with versions of Beau Brummels' psych-pop classic Gentle Wandering Ways and the sixties folk obscurity As Pure As The Freshly Driven Snow by Whistler Chaucer Detroit & Greenhill.
The EP is rounded off another original Memory Grave (Recalled From The Crypt). Led by songwriter David Feck, Comet Gain have released a string of critically acclaimed records on Kill Rock Stars, Track & Field and What's Your Rupture?, with albums such as Réalistes, City Fallen Leaves, singles collection Broken Record Prayers and, in June of this year, Howl of the Lonely Crowd, establishing the band as one of the most fearlessly passionate and fiercely intelligent British bands around.
Crystal Stilts burst out of Brooklyn's storied post-punk indie scene in 2008 with a string of releases that culminated in their fantastic debut album Alight Of Night, deftly combining the spooked 60s Texas psych of 13th Floor Elevators and Red Crayola, the gothic blues/punk howl of Gun Club, the dark, experimental DIYism of early Flying Nun/Xpressway groups and a dash of classic 60s pop by way of early Jesus & Mary Chain.
Their critically acclaimed second album In Love With Oblivion was released on Fortuna POP! earlier this year.
Together as Cinema Red & Blue they've released one album to excellent reviews ("a knowing and affecting power-pop record about the foibles of loving records too much" - Pitchfork).
Now with this Halloween EP they're set to strike fear into the hearts of all. Be afraid, be very afraid! LIVE: Cinema Red & Blue play only their second show ever as part of Fortuna POP!'s 15th Birthday celebrations at the Scala on Tuesday 1st Nov.
