rating: close your eyes and imagine beach house, the raveonettes and dum dum girls on one stage..... wouldn't that be awesome? since it won't happen in the near future (i guess) you've been given a chance to listen to something that sounds pretty similar. of course i mean the new album by american/danish band "gliss". their third full length album is a wonderful mix of dream-pop, electronic and shoegaze elements. lush melodies and singing work like sweet glue that holds the song structures with dominant drums and basslines together. after their great 2012 ep "hunting" (luckily all three tracks from the ep can be found on the album) and the announcement of a third album i was really looking forward to it and i am more than satisfied with what they've come up with. i am sure that gliss will be on many "best of lists" at the end of the year! amazing album!listen to the 2012 ep "hunting" below (as mentioned, all three tracks are also on the album)
10/10 (n.e.)  /  9.5/10 (sascha)
