The Glass Menageries releases debut EP tonight
This week Captain America writes about The Glass Menageries’ literary psyched out dream pop. Read about the band here.
The Glass Menageries reflects all of us
Good literature is a conversation between the author and the characters, or the author and the subject—but the best draws readers into a conversation with themselves. Comprised of literary and thoughtful folk, The Glass Menageries invites you to converse while you sway to inspired dream pop that paints divine mind pictures.
Random tracks from North America’s Josh and Jesse Hasko
Twin brothers Josh and Jesse Hasko are the post-dance, psych rock duo North America. On Friday, April 29, the Albuquerque band hosts its spring/summer tour Push Off Party at The Kosmos (1715 Fifth Street NW). The show starts at 9 p.m., admission is $5 and The Fertile Crescent opens. Peer into the Haskos’ shared music collection via the random tracks below.
Elephant 6 is an influential collective / cult / record label that began in the late '80s as a Ruston, La.-based high school home-recording experiment. It grew as the years passed, went on to relocate headquarters to Denver, Colo. and Athens, Ga. and spawned bands that deal heavily in psych, indie and folk—The Apples in Stereo, Neutral Milk Hotel and Of Montreal to name a few. Seventeen-year-old Athens psychedelic band Elf Power is part of Elephant 6 and, I'm proud to say, of the bunch it's the group I've loved the most. Its music is like the embodiment of a fantasy novel—full of magic, darkness and shimmering crescendos. Elf Power is on tour in support of its self-titled 10th album, and makes a stop at the Launchpad on tonight at 9 p.m. Admission is $8 and the show is 21-and-over.
