The Skygreen Leopards – “Leave the Family”
S.F. psych-rock duo The Skygreen Leopards have a new album due July 8 on Woodsist called Family Crimes, and they’ve released the first song from it, “Leave the Family,” a bit of sunny-sounding psychedelia with goth lyrics—“you leave the family and you don’t come back,” goes one refrain over jangly 12-string guitar. Donovan Quinn, one of the two Leopards, is a busy guy—he also recently released a great record with Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance under the moniker New Bums. In fact, that whole Woodsist gang seems to be bustling as of late, with Woods’ recent, excellent album having been released and the gang gearing up for new Woodsist Fests, one Aug. 5-6 in Big Sur and another Aug. 16 in Pioneertoown (featuring Skygreen Leopards, Woods, Real Estate and more). Thanks for keeping us chill w/your cool hippie vibes throughout the summer, guys!
