Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
A few years back Outrageous Cherry got a lot of love from The New Pornographers who released a EP of Outrageous Cherry covers on Matador titled Togetherness - The New Pornographers Play Outrageous Cherry. After the critically acclaimed glam/psych miasma of 2009's Universal Malcontents, and subsequent tours in Europe and the USA, O.C. returned to their analog cave to record Matthew Smith's latest batch of tunes. Throughout 2010's Seemingly Solid Reality, sweet melodies and harmonies soar over the gnashing of vicious, urban Motor City guitar workouts while Motown-fueled bass and drums throb hypnotically.
"Like Universal Malcontents, Seemingly Solid Reality is a perfect marriage of all of the genres that inspire Smith, namely ‘60's bubblegum and ‘70's AM radio pop with a dash of psychedelic sound to keep things off kilter. To quote Smith, "I grew up on that early ‘70s pop radio when all those different things were mixed up. Things weren't divided into different formats. Back then it was Anne Murray next to Deep Purple next to Kool and the Gang next to T. Rex. Nobody complained. If you tried to do that nowadays, people would think you were expecting too much of them. Today, it would be an act of political insurrection to play the Beatles next to Gordon Lightfoot and Kool and the Gang all in the same hour." – Rock N Roll Runner
