Gildon Works Building Walls of Sound at JB’s March 11

Gildon Works Building Walls of Sound at JB’s March 11

More than mere shoegaze, Philly sextet Gildon Works is a force to be reckoned with. Sincerely felt emotive nestled between deft melodies, what began as a side project between Gerard Angelini (ex-Relay) and Cody Ferdinand has evolved into a well-loved fixture of our city’s soundscape. The band composes a delicate fusion between atmospheric post-rock and chilled out indie pop with vocals reminiscent of Sunny Day Real Estate minus all the gloom. Paired with dreamy riffs and hushed percussion, songs like “Pity For the City” and “Artful Rifle” (the title-track of their debut), Gildon Works' sound avoids trendy cop-outs in favor of true musicianship. Headlining JB’s with Scout Niblett and Walker Lundee, Gildon Works live performance is guaranteed to please. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave, 9pm, $10, 21+ myspace.com/gildonworks - Dianca Potts
