Frantic Chant - The Glass Factory
Mondays! Yeah, they can be a little version of hell (So I'm told. I've never actually been to hell, but I still have nightmares about last November's election). It seems to me that the only viable strategy is some music to wipe away Monday. The possible tactics are something impossibly sweet and endearing, so we think everything will be OK, or something that heavy and encompassing. We're going with the latter. Specifically, it is time for the recent album from our Edinburgh friends Frantic Chant. Purveyors of psychedelic rock and shoegaze, they may perfect music to get lost in. For me, it is a trip back to the great psychedelic rock vinyl albums created in the late 60s and first half of the '70s. Musicians lost in the moment, shredding and brooding to please themselves and anyone else bold enough to dive in. Stream it below and check out the Bandcamp link.
Frantic Chant are Nick (guitars), Stazy (vocals/guitar), O'Hara (bass), and Col (drums). Trumpet was played by Colin McCafferty (e.g. track 4), and mandolin, moothy and backing vocals by Elle Durnan.
