The SKYGREEN LEOPARDS have a new album called FAMILY CRIMES. This latest outing continues the Skygreen's tradition of skewed, sunshiney pop with lyrics that focus on the bummer parts of an eternal rock and roll summer. Donovan Quinn (NEW BUMS) and Glenn Donaldson sing and strum tales of real and imaginary lovers and friends or delivery impressionistic rants about losing love, getting high or feeling uncomfortable. They record and mix straight off a nice tape machine run by Jason Quever of PAPERCUTS (who also plays in the band sometimes along iwth Jasmyn Wong and Marcantonio) and resist the temptation to use digital erasers, preferring to leave in the mistakes and rough edges. Whether you've been following Skygreen Leopards since the psych CD-R boom, came on board after their gnarled country opus Disciples of California, or are a newcomer to the Skygreen's jangling world: FAMILY CRIMES is the perfect introduction to their patented brand of blemished pop.
