Cross Record Be Good on LP
Between melody and discord, Cross Record's first full-length LP Be Good forges a quiet path through myriad sounds. Strings, clarinet, flute, steel drum, bells, tape distortion and other instrumentation support Emily Cross's enchanting vocals while allowing for silences to build like black holes. Her lyrics conjure a dark beauty that leaves an effect long after the album has completed. Released by Lay Flat as a 300-press LP in September of 2012, the record followed a string of self-released recordings by this enterprising 25-year-old. Be Good is now available on vinyl once again courtesy of Ba Da Bing.
