Ah, Glassjaw. It’s not every day that you can say that you saw Glassjaw twice in the span of one year. And it’s not every day that Glassjaw plays your hometown on your best friend’s birthday, and your entire blog staff (all three, ya bastards) hangs out together, gets silly drunk and gets to watch one of your favorite bands of all time. A belated happy birthday goes out to Sunbear, who managed to get daps from Daryl Palumbo while stumbling around in the pit and saw a massive Glassjaw set, highlighting 11 new songs that the band has put out in the last two months. Along for the ride were New York homers Tidal Arms (who gave us a fantastic interview prior — coming soon!) and These People.
Hit the jump for the review.
well – back to work, right? what’s most surprising is that a 5 song EP from glassjaw managed to have a bigger word count than most reviews i’ve written, which average anywhere from 400 to 500. even more notable, this is my first review for an EP – ever. even in college. it’s all good, though. here’s to the first of many reviews in ’11.
glassjaw’s back, and that’s pretty much the best thing ever.
EDIT: bringing this back up because it’s true, and you can now buy the EP. happy new year, playas.
well, ok then. i realized that the release of all those 7” singles were leading up to something. however, i could honestly say that i wasn’t expecting an “all in one” release of the aforementioned singles. worship and tribute came out in 02, gentleman. releasing one single every month for the past five and then banding them together as an EP EIGHT YEARS LATER does not fucking count.
this band is so frustrating. sad thing is, i’ll probably buy it. and really? tracks in alphabetical order?! hilarious.
