Cherry Death "Saccharine" 2xLPNot Normal Tapes
Oklahoma's Cherry Death is a hard one to pin down. As musicians, their roots lie in hardcore punk, with members doing time in OKC heavyweights such as American Hate and the FUFS, but as a group they're possessed by a different sorts of ghosts. They jangle like the Byrds and their Paisley Underground progeny, while maintaining a working-class, twang and flannel vibe. Saccharine is bright music for dark times.
This all-around monster of a record comes housed in a full-color gatefold jacket designed by the imitable Pearl Olson, with hand stamped center labels.
