PREMIERE: Green and Glass's debut is a mystic chamber-pop overture, play Threes Brewing 3.4

It’s rare that a record is able to capture a perfect balance of forward momentum and somber reflection, yet this is precisely what New York avant-pop ensemble Green and Glass have accomplished on their debut full length. Such conflicting feelings are likely a product of the band’s methodical instrumentation, the joining of parts from the old world (harps, horns, and drums) and the new (keys and electric bass), which as set pieces for bandleader Lucia Stavros’ show-stealing, often mysterious lyricism, creates an intergenerational atmosphere — chamber pop that feels as modern as it does baroque. This tone is set early in the record on “Green and Glass” and “14 Hours,” whose march-like tempos, somber brass lines and cool synths serve as distinctive introductory fanfares; while the song’s formats may seem familiar at first, the script is immediately upended by the band’s diverse instrumental offerings. This energy continues throughout standout track “Sand,” where the unison of harp and electric guitar against a stuttering percussive line paves the way for an ethereal overture that perfectly blends woodwind and midi leads. In all, Green and Glass delights and surprises at every turn, a lush, experimental yet accessible record that will feel immediately at home with fans of San Fermin or Hundred Waters — stream our premiere below, and catch the band at Threes Brewing on March 4th for their record release show.

Sunblood "One of A Kind"

Jacksonport "Chicago"

John Fatum (aka Jacksonport) has released his second single, and it is an ode to the area he grew up in called "Chicago". The video for the single was shot in his hometown of Wilmette at 5am after a fresh snowfall.

He takes his stage name from a small town in Door County Wisconsin, and clearly holds his Midwest roots in high regard. He recently left his home in Brooklyn to travel the country and release a song a month through out the year. January's release was called "Time to Dream", and is a great start to what should be an impressive year for Fatum.
