If you haven't heard of Glass America, you're missing out.
For fans of Explosions in the Sky and Sigur Ros, you must must give a listen to the talented guys of Glass America. Their sound is so deep and moving and their songs are wonderfully intricate. You can tell that they've been working on this second album tediously for months. I actually have the pleasure of knowing them in real life, and trust me, they've been slaving over it and it's a masterpiece.
They can be light and dreamy one minute, yet strong and forceful the next. Their brilliant instrumentation keeps me on the edge of my seat, and I know you won't be disappointed.
Their new album Fathom is officially released today! You can find it on iTunes, Amazon mp3, or at glassamerica.bandcamp.com. Or you can also stream it live on Spotify if that's more your style. Look them up and let me know what you think!
