Fire Track: The Reds, Pinks And Purples – “The Record Player & The Damage Done”

The Reds, Pinks & Purples second single from its new LP for Slumberland (on Tough Love in Europe) Uncommon Weather which is out April 9, 2021.

“The Record Player and the Damage Done,” is a solid piece of DIY pop that echoes immaculate influences such as The Church, Felt and New Zealand’s Flying Nun label. Indeed, such inspirations thoroughly suffuse the new album Uncommon Weather and the artist behind the project, Glenn Donaldson, refers to the song as “a tribute to the spiritual practice of record collecting.” It’s this loving, deep attention to the history and mysterious power of the best pop music that animates Donaldson’s brilliant songs, which themselves feel destined to enter the canon, and of which “The Record Player and the Damage Done” is a prime example.
