Glide Review - Grooms - Prom

Hey ya'll!  Got a new review up on Glide

You can read it right c'here!!!

It is of Grooms 2nd full length release Prom

Grooms are a Brooklyn 3 piece that plays a mix of noise and pop tunes, making for a tangled web of sound and songs.  One of the things I liked best about the album was that it wasn't easy to digest during the first few listens and I kept finding new layers of playing when I went back to the disk.

Not everything is perfect, the singing and lyrics to me could use some work.  Travis Jackson tries hard to be Doug Martsch, but in complete confession it took me a looong time to warm up to Doug's singing style and not just think of him as a whiner.  Like Built to Spill though the tunes contained here are engaging when you digest them.

I am hoping to catch the group live soon, feel free to grab their album and here are a 5 tunes from Grooms bandcamp site that are worth checking out.
