The Catharsis of Glassbones

The Catharsis of Glassbones

As a soundtrack for late '90s college rock or grunge of the Pacific Northwest, Glassbones would be a wonderful hybrid of The Crow and the all-American nuance of Varsity Blues. This year’s debut EP There's Still Time Left deals with issues of detachment and personal apocalypse but with determination to hold steadfast. On the track "Sink or Swim", Colin Johnson's scruffy vocals peacefully deal with twisted wreckage and the earth cracking. They are ominous yet optimistic. The bass foreshadows dire circumstances with fat strides, the drumming is steady like heartbeats of anticipation, and the energy of the lead guitar is upbeat in the breakdown. The track "Raise The Glass" changes it up a bit, starting out as a dark minstrel style tune then warping into a carnival ride of warning about conformity and being a slave to the almighty dollar. Make your way into the crowd or onto the comfy couches of The Tonic Lounge on Saturday, December 1st for the full experience of Glassbones with Nice Shootin' Tex and Lydian Gray. - Brandy Crowe
