THE REDS, PINKS & PURPLES – ” Leave It All Behind ” / ” Can’t Stop The World From Going By “

Posted: August 2, 2021 in MUSIC

Having released the terrific listen “Uncommon Panic” earlier this year, Glenn Donaldson is back with a new single as The Reds, Pinks & Purples. “Leave it All Behind” and “Can’t Stop the World from Going By” are both charmingly mopey jangly songs in the classic indiepop in the Smiths style. Writing a guide to the music of Glenn Donaldson is a deceptively difficult task. First of all, there’s a ton of it.

Donaldson has been making music since the late 1990s so, depending on your age and your musical taste, you might associate him with: his scrappiest earliest recordings as the Ivy Tree; the experimental sound art he made with Jewelled Antler Collective in the early ‘00s; his Byrds-esque jangle band Skygreen Leopards; the rough-and-tumble indie pop of the Art Museums; his psych-folk collaboration with Woods Jeremy Earl as Painted Shrines; or you might have heard a track from his conceptual instrumental project FWY. in a commercial. It could just as easily be none of those. His newest release is a full-length LP called “Uncommon Weather” under the name the Reds, Pinks and Purples. Donaldson has always preferred to give his projects band names even when there’s nobody else involved.
