I'm usually not one for ambient textures and epic build-ups on nearly every song but I've lately been enchanted by Glasvegas' debut, self-titled that just came out this week. I really like the melody that rests below singer James Allan's Franz Ferdinand-by-way-of Arctic Monkeys harmonies on this single below, "Daddy's Gone".
Glasvegas is playing Saturday night at Chop Suey and will surely be there. Opening is Carl Barat, formerly of The Libertines and Dirty Pretty Things. One of my absolute favorite live show moments is watching Barat and Pete Doherty's intensity and tension at the Crocodile years and years ago with The Libertines. Doherty kept pushing himself to a point that you thought he would collapse but still kept rocking.
Barat and Glasvegas should make for a delicious night of excellent rock Saturday at Chop Suey.
Here (as mentioned above) is the video for Glasvegas' "Daddy's Gone":
