Product Description

BBC Review

Much admired by similarly out-there sonic adventurers The Flaming Lips, Colourmusic are a puzzling proposition. Loosely indie, for the sake of categorisation here, they are as likely to shift from folk-inspired prettiness to gut-crunching riffs as they are saucy RnB motifs to psychedelic explosions.

If this makes the idea of a 14-track LP rather hard to stomach, please: fizz a few antacids and hop along for a ride that rarely seems like it knows where it’s heading until it arrives there, usually too quickly and without all seatbelts fastened. Truly, this is scintillating fare, albeit rock of a variety that can dizzy itself to the extent where a point becomes dulled by the practice – not that it matters, because the poise is so polished (when it’s not drenched in feedback) that the band’s directionless bombast is a most pleasing soundtrack to all and any whatever-the-weather escapades.

That the four-piece call very different places home – individuals from Oklahoma and Yorkshire are rarely found in the same band – maybe goes some way to explaining their endearingly scattershot approach to songwriting. Certainly, no single lynchpin directs proceedings – and if frontman Ryan Hendrix does, someone needs to open up his dome to take a look at what’s ticking out of any sensible time in there. At its most immediate the Lips are an easy parallel: You for Leaving Me summons Coyne and company at their most prog-flecked funky, adding another few inches to the platform soles. We Shall Wish (Use Your Adult Voice) is a dreamy number akin to Deerhunter’s widescreen voyages into the ethereal; and Pororoca – which translates, apparently, as "great destructive noise" – is a sort of sci-fi U2 affair, recasting Bono as Buck Rogers while The Edge’s guitars get trampled into a thousand pieces by Brian Blessed in full Prince Vultan flow.

Fans of MGMT and the recently reformed Death From Above 1979 will find much to enjoy, too. The former’s penchant for shimmering pop hooks beneath cranium-stretching conceptual content appears present and correct (Yes!, for example), while the sheer force of some of this set’s more rollicking cuts is comparable to that mustered by the Canadian duo (check out the frenetic, fuzz-soaked opener, Beard).

But it’s unsurprising, given this album’s lively leaping from style to style, that the band they most remind the listener of is themselves – and that they’ve only just begun, this being their second album, makes the prospect of future forays into the aural unknown all the more enticing. When they lock their grooves down, let the drums fly and the guitars spark, there are few bands out there to touch Colourmusic’s engrossing racket.

Format: Audio CD
Took a plunge after hearing Tog on Radcliffe and Maconie-so very glad I did.

Just an epic, loud, noisy (and needs to be played REALLY LOUD) maelstrom of BIG meaty drums, epic jangly guitars with manly chord arrangements, and sleazy, insiduous, almost creepy vocals mixed with choral harmonies that at times-e.g. We shall Wish(Use your Adult Voice)-reminds me of Le Mystere de Voix Bulgares in the almost "open throat" nature of the sound...but rockin'!

This will bludgeon your senses into submission....overwhelming, with many absolute belters, such as the sequence of tracks 3 through to 6, which just carry you along on the shoulders of some mega riffs, and as for Track 10-the Little Death-epic prog does not do this justice-it's over 10 minutes long but well worth the commitment.

Track 13-Whitby Harbour- is simply, I think, a recording of the sea, and acts as something of a palate cleanser before the big push over the top of Track 14, "Yes!", the final and most chart-friendly track IMHO, although I would love a chart where most of this album appeared. Sadly, I know this is not to be, but I am glad that Colourmusic is our slightly dirty little secret....Buy this-you will not regret it!

In a sense this album is a bit of a sprawling psychedelic mess but it is absolute brilliant for it. It meanders between styles and there are some incredible riffs on there which I think I should probably feel guilty for loving but it all just seems strangely fitting!

Totally blown away by the depth of noise here. It opens with bloody shoegaze FX pedal noise, then there's Flaming Lips like wall of sound, Liars drumming, Radiohead cinematics, DFA1979 skuzzzz rock and ending with a glam rock stomper chant-along 'Yes!'. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.

A future-classic album from a band not afraid to explore 26 April 2011
By Evan Fleishacker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You don't deserve this album. That's right, I said it. Go away; you're not going to enjoy the fuzzed-out maze that Colourmusic have created for you to discover. Forget you ever heard of the genre-bending songs like You for leaving me (you'll just force yourself not to dance along) Beard (you'll try too hard to convince yourself it's nothing new and exciting), and Tog (you don't like to smile anyways). You'll furrow your brow and attempt to make the others know that you don't really like Colourmusic, and that My ___ is Pink is not an album to adore and hold up as an astounding record. Go to your corner, now; let the others experience the joy. Man, who was that guy?

This album is worth a listen for anyone considering it. Each song has so many layers and catchy hooks that make you want to turn it up!

Pink rules 17 May 2011
By BigBolus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you want your mind blown you need to buy Pink! I promise if everyone buys this album the world will align like in Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey were the music created peace and harmony for the world. Seriously it is that good.
