Glimpse Trio: Glimpse Trio

San Leandro band Glimpse Trio is a kind of catch-all band, hopping from one genre to the next without blinking an eye. A track like Russian Racing channels the Pixies, they go jazzy in the three part Light From Outside and the lead single Holiday is a cheerful garage rocker. Country rock? Try I Got This Thing. Blues? Work Your Brains Out does a trick, with the ghost of Alex Chilton nodding approval. Dreamy shoegaze? Take a Ride. Spoken word on top of free jazz? Just My Thoughts? Feedback heavy noise rock? Your Idea.

The band's self-titled third album could have turned into messy overcrowded jukebox, but the band have put a lot of thought into the running order. Their musical mood swings make perfect sense. It's a cornucopia of smart tunes, fun and musicianship. No sign of surf music, which would have been too obvious for a band from California.

Glimpse Trio:
Mike Sopko: guitar, vocals
Hamir Atwal: drums
Chris Lopes: bass
