Crayon Fields prep ‘All the Pleasures of the World’ deluxe 10th anniversary reissue
Melbourne band Crayon Fields' 2009 album All the Pleasures of the World is a baroque pop gem, recalling The Zombies and The Left Banke, but in a modern way that avoids pastiche and still sounds great today. The band are celebrating its 10th anniversary with a new deluxe reissue that will be out February 7 via Chapter Music. (Pre-order yours.) The pressing comes on blue-green "galaxy swirl" vinyl, with new liner notes from frontman Geoffrey O’Connor and well as Melbourne novelist/scriptwriter Anna Barnes (Content), plus an album's worth of digital bonus tracks, including demos, alternate versions, and covers of songs by ABBA, Roxette and Kath Bloom. You can stream the original album, plus a demo version of "Mirrorball," below.
We've also got the premiere of a new video for All the Pleasures of the World's lush title track which was directed by O'Connor and features a zooful of singing animals. You can watch that below.
