New Video: Light Ages
Believe it or not, the new BC release, 'Spandrels' is tentatively scheduled to drop Winter 2014!
It will be released on double blue vinyl (which will come with a complimentary CD copy) and digital download only!
If you have iTunes or accounts on other download services, you can get it there.
I know it is said on every release... but this release is like no other BC release!
How different is it? Let's just say that this one is going to....Folk You Up!
(By folk, we mean English folk that has bizarre tunings and tons of atmosphere)
Intrigued? Stay tuned, as there should be some teaser tracks released shortly.

Slowly but surely the word is spreading...
From one of the many Progzines:
“Are You Getting On?” is a wet dream for the audiophile whose eardrums
have been shredded and violated by the advent of the digital record industry and the misuse of louder-is-better
digital compression...superb vocal harmonies, and flawless production. What more can you ask for! "

"Blue Cartoon.. "pushing the power pop envelope and 'progressing' into something relevant and wondrous"

"Blue Cartoon has been coyly issuing little ribbon-wrapped confections from Austin, Texas for fifteen years now.
Each new chocolate box is devoured greedily by a cult of sugar-starved power-pop junkies..." Full Review

Line-up ChangeOnce again a line-up change has occurred. Following the completion of 'AYGO?', Terry Carolan left the band for personal, as well as professional reasons. Fans of Terry's can catch up with him here Unfortunately, personnel changes are as common as an over abundance of material with BC. Still, they took it in stride and recruited Austinites Brendan Rogers on keys and Tim Winters for bass duties. This puts Lee Elliott back into the 2nd guitar slot and has simultaneously transformed the band into a very powerful 6 piece for their live presentations! As an added bonus, both new members are also contributing vocally, which makes the harmonies even richer. However, while they will be playing a few select shows to support AYGO?, this is not your average touring band story. In fact, ideas are already flying about and the new lineup is generating a lot of heat. They are expected to head back into the studio this summer to begin tracking on the next album. The band has promised it will not take 3 years until their next release.
