Glifted - Under And In


Year: Martians Go Home
Label: 2002

First off, I must apologize for the lack of posts recently, but some unforeseen changes in my professional life have forced a shift in priorities as of late, and thusly I have not been very motivated to "blog" as it where.

But you don't care do you? I probably wouldn't.

So then on to Glifted. A duo consisting of Tim Lash of Hum, and T.J. Harrison of Lovecup out of Campaign-Urbana who produced the first piece of music to rival My Bloody Valentine, since the release of the watershed "Loveless". And I mean that. This is a true shoegazing monster in that My Bloody Valentine vein, hypnotic, pulsing, droning waves of thick guitars with the disembodied, distant vocals swelling over the music. It's sort of Hum + My Bloody Valentine + Mercury Rev. It's strange music, maybe not "rock" music per se, but it's definitely heavy, and it should appeal to followers of this blog. 

Let me know what you think.

Enjoyable. 'not rock, but heavy' is tight on.

We do care, we do care.
Album is quite interesting. Having a bit of trouble getting passed the vocals, but I think I just need to get used to them.

This album is so good.

More people need to hear this. In fact, I think it needs to sit among Loveless, Soulaki, Whirlpool, and Nowhere when giving the shoegazer essentials.
