MP3: “The Bay” by Church of the Red Museum
Stephen Slaybaugh writes:
The faces of the Church of the Red Museum will be familiar to anyone following local music, the bands’ members having played in such outfits as Go Evol Shiki! and Frostiva, but the jarring sounds of this new conglomeration are distinctly fresh ones. Forming near the end of 2005, the band quickly recorded and released a startling self-titled debut on local upstart label Manup in 2006. The band’s striking blend of macabre themes and Tin Pan–greased, chanty din bodes well for even greater things in 2007.
