Label: Tough Love Records
Deep amidst San Franciscoâ€™s Richmond neighborhood misty air and washed-out pastel blocks, Glenn Donaldson has been diligently creating minor masterpieces with rudimentary home technology for some time now. With The Reds, Pinks & Purples, Donaldson has finally created a vivid reflection of this dreary scene. You Might be Happy Someday is an oblique strand of SF outer-avenue cloud cover that stretches across the Atlantic to the grey docks of Bristol as captured in Sarah Recordsâ€™ fetishized insert photos. – Tough Love Records
If you’re a fan of DIY bedroom pop and lofi twee records, take a listen to The Reds, Pinks and Purples. You Might Be Happy Someday is a quick sophomore follow-up to their 2019 debut Anxiety Art and further explores the unlimited possibilities for majestic sounds with even the most basic home studio equipment. Big labels and big budgets be damned! Listen to two tracks below and grab a copy of the album on pastel pink vinyl after the ‘buy’ link. Keep in mind that these are shipping from the UK.
You Might Be Happy Someday is released on Tough Love on 2nd October.
Fittingly, the record will be pressed on to 'pastel pink' colour vinyl, with a limited run of 300 copies.
