about

richard gumby is project of Athenian via Detroit Scott Crossman, who makes off-kilter, sound collagey psych-pop in the best of Athens E6 tradition. it is not just an experimental pop album though; Crossman has a propensity for excruciatingly uptempo thrashers and bit-chopped guitars that somehow come off as happy. there are also more somber, nuanced songs that give away the ominous source material underlying them. regal guitars in alternate tunings grant the listener entry into terra incognita, gently tossing tradition to the wayside. hardrive is also adorned by meandering soundscapes, field recordings, and glitched voice memos that rattle the listener out of each song, dragging them into the next movement, demanding attention.
-------------------------------------------------------

"The music alternates jarringly between uptempo, scuzzy power pop/punk tunes and spaced out psych rock, with a patchwork of sounds, field recordings and words in between that create an experience that is cohesive through being so fractured...somewhat like going through the hard drive of someone's personal computer at warp speed, only being able to observe snatches of the volumes of various media contained there."- Modern Folk Music of America

"The most exciting oddity to hit local shelves in a hot minute, Michigan transplant Scott Crossman’s inventive debut as Richard Gumby deserves the wider audience it will no doubt find in coming months. A striking mixture of meandering sound structures and more straightforward lo-fi pop tunes"-Flagpole Magazine

The songs of richard gumby hit hard and they hit fast except for when they don't. It's a psych-pop ride that takes us through the fuzz and otherwise guitar driven sounds which just blast away"- Raised by Gypsies
