Drunk Dial #5: Cry Babe 7"
- Portland dream-punk trio Cry Babe with a sprawling study of haunted sounds seemingly designed for gray winter days and long, lonely nights. The original on the A-side is backed with a lovely little surprise: a cover of Hole’s “Violet” that transforms the nineties classic into a wrenching, reverb-soaked showcase for the vocal work of Cry Babe frontwoman Anaïs Genevieve, whose stricken, soaring croon is one of the best things happening in Portland music right now. The Portland Mercury called Cry Babe “one of the city’s most promising new bands,” and the fine folks at Fish Hickey described their sound as “music that settles into your bones and makes your heart shake.”
7" Pink Vinyl single
- Drunk Dial Records invites artists they adore into a recording studio to write and record an original song and cover a classic tune in one session. But there’s a catch! The artist or band in question must compose and perform these songs while inebriated. The recordings are then released as a 7” vinyl single.
