Rhedcerulean - Kindling
$6 CD / $2 Download
Often moody, sometime atonal, and otherwise out of tune, the music of Rhedcerulean is reminiscent of a chronic depression with a hopeful optimism that someday soon things won't suck so bad. Many of the songs feature some element of anti-pop mockery with a sincere attempt to be uplifting. The music is a break from the norm. It's introspective, but it's refreshingly satirical.
