To my knowledge, it’s been 4+ years since we’ve heard from Chris Donlon, the “Chris” half of defunct West Coast indie/folk duo Chris & Mollie. Their spirited + chaotic 2007 swan song The Palm Tree was an out-of-nowhere favorite of mine that year. Now recording as The Creepy Crawlies, Donlon is (finally) working on a new full length called Get Buried! after a few years focusing on his career as a film editor. The title track features playful, swooning back + forth boy/girl vocals, swirling sound effects, and some choice lines (“leave my body here on the shore/could be worse, could be nuclear war”). It’s charmingly bummed-out indie-pop at its finest and a welcome return. “Get Buried!” is currently part of the Denial Is A Free EP along with b-side “Not Thinking”.
