Very slinky indie with aural connections to Wolf Alice, Jennie Vee and older touch stones like Belly and The Breeders dreamier moments. Cherry Glazerr made some beautiful cotton candy cloud pop for folks who have feedback in there ears while they sleep.
This has the sheen of a blurred sunburn at sunset cinemascope feel to it with red threads tied to everything from JAMC to Starcrawler. Listening to it on a wet weekend in March while we wait for summer time to remember where we live? It’s like looking at old photo’s on your phone from when you used to slather Hipstagram filters over everything.
The Glazerr’s second album Stuffed & Ready expands on the pop hooks of debut long player Apocalipstick but has seen them make a leap not dissimilar to the one Karen O‘s Yeah Yeah Yeahs made between Fever To Tell and Show Your Bones.
I’m not getting caught out a second time. I wasn’t ready for YYY’s to grow up. I’m step by step into what Cherry Glazerr have done here. Other overly tactile tracks include album opener Ohio and That’s Not My Real Life. The pouty Daddi and the full on rocker Stupid Fish show the bands range from ingenue inflected bear traps to anthems for those enjoying a conflicted inner dialogue.
I’m loving this band and I’m using them to vicariously get some vitamin D from my speakers while I wait for the mudball I live on to turn back into something more habitable.
