Glimpse Trio: Garage
Glimpse Trio - Garage Review

Glimpse: Trio Garage

Melodic Alternative/Progressive Rock
5.0/5.0

I know it's cliche, but sometimes a band comes around that really surprises and pleases, offering something not so much weirdly eclectic or novel, but simply imaginative and impressive. Such is the case with the Bay Area's Glimpse Trio and their sophomore release Garage.

Glimpse Trio: will poke your eye out, and then laugh about it.

The strengths of this trio of players is both their sound musicianship and versatility and depth of style. Largely centered around Mike Sopko's inventive guitar, Glimpse Trio traverse a landscape of musical genres, often weaving several together in something close to improvisation.

You something like Sixties flower power melodic rock on Told You Tough, groovy psychedelic guitar rock on Come Back, and then more heavy stoner rock on Pleasanton Glimpse Trio has an affection for the blues. Going to Hell is true to form as it is close to Memphis or Chicago. Later, Cobwebs and Lost work the same angle, but from a more country folk side. A slow burning blues groove comes on the closer Garage. In between you'll find interesting fusion pieces like Pork and Hell, with more rock, even psychedelic edge.

With little doubt, Glimpse Trio is quite talented and right fine songs to boot. Garage is a most excellent second effort from the band. Strongly recommended.






In Short

Traversing a variety musical styles, Glimpse Trio offers inventive and entertaining songs on their second release Garage.
