Newmusicmonday #115:: Green and Glass

0002488519_10 This blog is turning into a blog of missed connections and a celebration of the end of eras. The next post on Blossom Café (a restaurant, not a band) will solidify this. I missed Green and Glass, who (I think) had two shows in Brooklyn recently, one at The Manhattan Inn. I can't remember how I stumbled upon them, but I'm glad I did. There's a hint of Stereolab & Lætitia Sadier at their mellowest in their sound. The syncopated horns and very accessible vocals make for some interesting indie pop, but it might be a tad austere for some. They also remind me a bit of earlier Au Revoir Simone, sans harmonies. I think "cement & metals" is a fine example of what I (think) I'm talking about:: "Wash" has strings (harp) that add a crisp texture to the sound. The band members are Sam Decker, Dave Flaherty, Andrew McGovern, Lucia Stavros, and Ryan Dugre. I wish I knew more about them
