Cross Record


Between melody and discord, Cross Record’s first full-length LP Be Good forges a quiet path through a myriad of sounds. The record follows a string of self-released recordings by this enterprising 25-year-old. Strings, clarinet, flute, steel drum, bells, tape distortion, and other instrumentation, support Emily Cross’ enchanting vocals while allowing for silences to build like black holes. Cross’ lyrics conjure a dark beauty that leaves an effect long after the album has completed.
Self-released as a 300 run LP in September of 2012, Be Good is getting a formal distribution via Ba Da Bing. We have the last remaining copies of that original pressing, a beautiful, white-vinyl album with poster insert, and are releasing the album in a limited CD run. Emily Cross has just moved from Chicago to Austin, and is presently at work on her next album, which will be released on Ba Da Bing.
