Label: Drag City

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

Out of stock

"The Red Krayola live to see another day. Having communed with their fans around the world in 2005 -- in Europe, Japan and the U.S. -- they were invigorated. Last summer they returned to one of their favorite haunts, the recording studio, for a session to capture the magic all at once. Today the result -- Introduction, 15 songs strong -- is here, and does just that. Introduction is an epic that presents The Red Krayola at their very best. Featuring the contributions of long-time members Stephen Prina, Tom Watson and John McEntire (who recorded and mixed the album at his Soma Recording Studio), Introduction introduces the accordion styles of Charlie Abel, whose slow flickering squeeze-box lines the album, and the elegant perfection of Noel Kupersmith's bass. The moods of Introduction are alternately contemplative, whimsical, aggressive, amorous, innocent and raw -- while always decorous in that special way popular music demands. Introduction is a new masterpiece from The Red Krayola -- a world of strengths, a compendium of knowledge, a record for today -- to be played for generations to come."
