Release Date: 14th October
Glenn Donaldson's The Reds, Pinks & Purples have only been around a few years but in those few years he's really filled the years with the best indie pop in town, the kind that fills our hearts and gets it swelling like only the fuzz, jangle and melancholy of this pure indie pop can. Here's an early EP, you may have missed with a bag of extras that go to prove that Glenn never misses when shooting for the heart.
Before The Reds, Pinks & Purples started getting noticed by a larger audience, the - I Should Have Helped You 4 song EP - snuck out on Swedish experimental label I Dischi Del Barone and quickly disappeared, becoming a little-heard but often whispered about piece of the RPPs discography
Recorded around the same time as the material that ended up on the buzzed- about LP "Uncommon Weather," it contains some of the best examples of Glenn Donaldson's melancholy but wry take on indie pop. Needless to say, it's terrific. The original 7" is now a white whale for collectors, trading for silly prices on Discogs when it shows up at all. This music *needs* to be heard, so we've put together this limited reissue that adds six more tracks to make it a mini-LP length grab bag of hits. It has songs about record shopping, religion, worker's rights, dysfunctional holidays, and of course heartbreak sung over a maze of shimmering fuzzy guitars and drum machine beats -- essential chapter of the Reds, Pinks & Purples story.Packaging: LP Royal Blue vinyl [w/ download card]
