Crisman // Debut self-titled album out now

It's album release day for Crisman, their full-length, self-titled debut is available now to stream and for purchase on cassette or vinyl. The Alternative calls Crisman, "[...] atmospheric and translucent, with jutting riffs that prevent it from becoming shapeless." If you haven't heard it yet, give it a spin. We've had this record on repeat for weeks and we think you'll want to do the same \ (•◡•) /

For this album, founding members Madeline Dowd and Boone Patrello teamed up with fellow Denton musician Grahm Robinson. Contrasted against the childlike playfulness of Dowd's paintings, the band's collective experience is refracted throughout the measured ten-song collection.

Crisman // Share sweet serenade "Icee Blue"

"Icee Blue" is the third single from Crisman's forthcoming self-titled debut album. The song shares in the experience of love and the infectiousness of a new romance, a thematic reproduction of the song's infectious composition. Appeals to this fresh love slowly unfurl over ambling drums and sugary acoustics, accentuated with flashes of glockenspiel and keys which reimagine the spritely energy of newfound affection. We promise you'll wanna listen to this one over and over again \ (♥‿♥) /


If (like us) you just can't get enough Crisman you can pre-order their record before the April 3 release ~ available digitally, on CD, cassette, and 3 special vinyl variants including 180g black (limited to 75), blue (out of 125), and tri-stripe primary (out of 300)
