The Microphones – The Glow Pt. 2

The Glow Pt. 2

I’m not going to make a habit of posting ‘classic’ albums because I intend this blog to be mainly for new and more unknown stuff but I felt this was too good to not put up. The amazing thing about this record is how deeply personal and affected it sounds. Phil Elvrum has a voice capable of sounding both lethargic and intensely emotional at the same time and it drives the songs forward, acting as the crux of the band’s sound whilst also allowing space for the instrumentation to shine through whilst never dominating or overpowering. I’ve always thought The Microphones sounded like a polished version of the Mountain Goats which is possibly the closest comparison I can offer. Listen to this from start to finish and I almost guarantee you won’t regret it. An incredible piece of work.

Also, if you’re anal about tags, the album should be tagged as ‘The Glow Pt. 2’ rather than just ‘Glow, Part. 2’ as I believe it is on the download.

Thanks for checking out Acid Math!

This blog will hopefully act as a conduit for me to pass on stuff I think is awesome, to you, the music appreciator. There will be new stuff, old stuff, well known stuff and unknown stuff, everything will be good though, you can be sure of that.

Clicking on a picture will take you to a link where you can download said album for sampling purposes

Don't be selfish, consider all these links as means of sampling the artist only. If you like something then go and buy it. Equally as important, support your local music scene, no matter how small. Go and see shows.

I'm always up for linking with other blogs, so get in touch if you want to as well. Any queries? Leave a comment somewhere and i'll get back to you. Enjoy!
