A Blissful Night With Gliss

Gliss: May 4 @ Mercury Lounge, New York, NY

I went to Mercury Lounge to see Los Angeles band Gliss this past Monday. I'd been listening to their new record Devotion Implosion and was looking forward to checking out the show.

Gliss makes a lot of good noise. It took a good five hours for my ears to recover from their trippy attack. They're excellent musicians. If there had been any question to their musical precision, they erased all doubts when the band, Victoria Cecilia, Martin Klingman and David Reiss rotated instruments throughout the show and not once did the quality of their music suffer. They put on a good show and I enjoyed myself. Check them out if you're into trippy feedback and solid musicianship. You'll enjoy them and yourselves.
