17 hrs to go on his Kickstarter (Which is only 20% there. I hope he does it again and on Indiegogo.)
Crumbächer’s Incandescent released from Frontline Records!
Last heard on cassette in 1985. Now freshly re-mastered, with bonus track.
Frontline Records, a label of Meis Music Group, in collaboration with Ojo Taylor & Innocent Media, is making this Broken Records album available digitally on July 16th.
On this debut record, Crumbächer created the Euro-synth-pop niche in the Contemporary Christian Music industry. CCM announced the album as revealing “a new group on par with Vector.” Stephen Crumbacher’s vocals have the bouncy style of Men Without Hats and producer Ojo Taylor’s arrangements resemble the minimalist synthesizing of The Human League.
Stephen Crumbacher recorded his first commercial release, a solo version of It Don’t Matter, on the MRC sampler What’s Shakin’ in the summer of 1983, exactly 30 years ago. On the heels of that success which introduced Crumbächer to CCM, Stephen was invited to record a six-song EP for Maranatha! Music’s MRC label.
Stephen and long-time friends, Dawn Wisner and Jim Wisner, gave their first performance as Crumbächer five months later on New Year’s Eve, 1983. The full band, with the addition of Dan Hohulin on guitar, entered the studio for the first time to begin recording. Ojo Taylor of Undercover was back at the helm producing and engineering. Derri Daugherty of The Choir was brought in as tracking engineer and Chris Taylor mixed. Once the label heard the early results, they were so excited they requested that the band record a few additional songs for release as a full-length album. Those additions were Jamie and Infrared X-Ray Eyes, which turned out to be the group’s biggest songs from that album. Incandescent was released in April 1985 on Broken Records.
Incandescent was only distributed on vinyl and cassette. Bruce Neher, owner of Disc & Dat gave these tracks a tune-up for the first appearance of the record in any digital format.
Incandescent is available on iTunes, Amazon MP3 and at http://FrontlineRecords.us/ for Frontline $5.99.
