OK, so I'm years late in discovering this band, but I don't care because I think I am falling in love with them, and they're not exactly a household name anyway so you might well not have heard of them.
CBP have released three proper albums, or perhaps 1 album and one double album, sorry, am I confusing things ?
A Love Of Shared Disasters
The Resurrectionists / Night Raiders
It seems odd to describe a song both as disconsolate and alluring, but that is what CBP have achieved with their very individual style. What sort of music fan then might enjoy this idiosyncratic musical form, there are elements of goth in here, prog fans might get off on parts, folkies might enjoy some of the instrumental parts, best of all though, if you love Katy Perry or JLS, then you're going to hate CBP, it'll just blow your little mind away.
The Crippled Black Phoenix experience is enchanting and strange, it is seductive and perhaps a little daunting at the first listen, but do persevere, because there are many delights within. CBP are perhaps the most deliberately non-commercial band I have found in a while, but they are majestic and grand, weird and wondrous.
