TRACK PREMIERE: THE PRETTY FLOWERS “CREAM OF CANVAS”
The Pretty Flowers is an L.A. indie quartet (“indie” meaning “indestructible” as much as it means “independent,” of course) made up of members of the Breakups, Jungle Jungle, the Shirley Rolls and the mighty Henry Clay People, and “Cream of Canvas” is the debut single from their coming Why Trains Crash full-length. (Record release show tix here!) It’s heartfelt Thermals-core with a little warped Pinkerton-ian melody—a downer but a rocker at the same time, which you may well discover is kind of the Pretty Flowers’ specialty. They’ve got a small set of local shows coming this summer—dates across the greater L.A. area below!
