Glass Hits - Pioneers Get the Arrows, Settlers Get the Land

When I first heard Glass Hits I couldn't help but picture some mid 90's bands like The Great Unraveling or Harriet the Spy mixed with a voice similar to Drive Like Jehu. 

This is very well recorded, with some nice attention to the instruments.  There's a brightness to it without sounding weak.  The vocals have a reverb on them to further project the very mid 90's sound of the vocals.

For the most part what you're getting here is some pretty powerful drumming teamed up with a very prominent bass.  The guitar stays in the discordant range of things, adding a bit of a D.C. sound at times.  The vocals seem to take the forefront though and strangely find a nice melodic home among all the discord. 


Take a listen here.
