, , , , , , , , ,

‘Pink Skin’ marks the 10th self-release of R. M. Hendrix, a Cambridge artist who describes his songs the way wine connoisseurs describe drinks.  “This song is amber and tastes of cinnamon, oak and leather,” he says of “The Last Days of Black.”  “This song is orange and tastes of rare meat and honey,” a less-appealing description referring to “Staring into the Sun.”  Of “Lipstick and Perfect Hair” Hendrix notes, “this song is pink and tastes of sea salt and citrus.” Whatever your music preference, Hendrix promises to fill your senses with aromatic swirls that will cheer and inebriate.  Psychedelic overtones are coupled with hints of effervescence, resulting in relaxed confidence. Crafting songs since 1998, Hendrix joined with Jason Martin of Starflyer 59 to master the new 3-song EP.  Hendrix spoke with Resonance about bombastic elements, seasonal moods, and the New English sound.
