DIY kitchen pop project of Glenn Donaldson (Skygreen Leopards, Art Museums etc). “Anxiety Art” LP is out now via Slumberland (US) & Tough Love (UK). Tough Love Records will be reissuing the long out of print debut album by The Reds, Pinks and Purples. The new version of “Anxiety Art” is pressed to blue vinyl in an edition of 1000 and comes with revised artwork by Matthew Walkerdine.

Two hundred copies of Anxiety Art were originally pressed on Spanish label Pretty Olivia in 2019 and disappeared in a flash. This is the debut where The Reds, Pinks & Purples solidified the cathartic kitchen pop of later more widely distributed titles on both Tough Love and Slumberland. As The Reds, Pinks & Purples Glenn Donaldson – the man with the lengthy (perhaps The Most Lengthy?) Discogs page – decided to find his way out of the wilderness following some big and small personal tragedies and the demise of his former bands.

He landed on a way to weave his influences from Athens, Georgia to Bristol, England into something unique to his life in the Inner Richmond district of San Francisco. As mentioned above, the repress features an alternate cover with more of Donaldson’s neighbourhood photographs, tying it to both to the place of its conception and visually to the other releases in the ever-growing RP&Ps catalogue.


Recorded 2018-2019 in my kitchen in SF
