Cinema Red and Blue, Butterbean Crypt EP Review


Nostalgic and psychedelic, 'Walkin' To The Cemetery' opens the Butterbean Crypt EP with a dated musical feel that reeks of The Doors/The Who. The track sounds' Hammond organ with scuzzy guitars and simple repeated chord sequence over which heavily reverbed vocals echo, even a simple guitar solo. After the vocalist introduces each member of the band, 'Walkin' To The Cemetery' concludes with a quote of Chopin's funeral march.
