Artist: SKYGREEN LEOPARDS, THE
Title: Disciples of California
Format: LP
Label: Jagjaguwar
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"The Skygreen Leopards started in 2001 as a duo, just Glenn Donaldson and Donovan Quinn. Working out of the Hobo Victoria district of San Francisco, theyve since recorded five full-length albums and one EP in their five year history. Over these recordings the band has been given to metamorphosis but has always managed to sound distinctly Skygreen. Their newest album, Disciples of California, continues in the alchemical tradition of change and inward-revolt. On it, the Skygreen Leopards mix pop melodies, minimal country truisms, jingle-jangling Californianism and angular folk with something the band refers to as our horse called Dire Arrow, which roughly translates into family-friendly (sans the American Censorship connotations)." - Jagjaguwar.

Artist: SKYGREEN LEOPARDS, THE
Title: Gorgeous Johnny
Format: LP
Label: Jagjaguwar
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Its been 8 years since the first The Skygreen Leopards record was released. Since then the boys have maintained their singular aesthetic while managing to dabble with faux-folk, avant garde pop, reverb-drenched lo-fi psychedelia, plastic country and blurry ballads. This latest effort finds them collaborating with Jason Quever (Papercuts) to create a melancholy world overflowing with itinerant dandies, urban streets, suburban teens, and more girls names than I care to count, all set to melodic shuffles featuring harmonies, frail piano, and romantic guitars. As always with the Leopards the rhythms refuse to be bridled, the boys resist the urge to jam, and they wont ever learn to sing properly. This will frustrate the expectations of some. Others will find a sweet shadowy hiding place in these songs -- 3 minutes to hang out with girls who race horses, boys who never learned to dance, and a dirty uncle who steals your cigarettes." - Jagjaguwar.

Artist: SKYGREEN LEOPARDS, THE
Title: One Thosand Bird Ceremony
Format: CD
Label: Soft Abuse
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"The Skygreen Leopards are easily the most structured of any band in the Jewelled Antler stable of projects, which is not to say that improvisation figures heavily to their sound (oh, it does). What you get are loosely-structured psychedelic folk songs arranged with banjos, bouzoukis, 12 string guitars, tape loops, Hammond organ, and a host of other instruments. One Thousand Bird Ceremony is easily their most accomplished and fully realized album yet, and its the perfect soundtrack for the summertime. The Skygreen Leopards are Glenn Donaldson (Thuja, The Birdtree, The Blithe Sons, The Franciscan Hobbies) and Donovan Quinn (Verdure)." - Soft Abuse.
