GLEAM GARDEN: Self-titled: 10”EP

Jan 18, 2017

Highly melodic, energy-driven, and sunny. “Wasting Time” kicks things off super drenched in a Strokes vibe, same with “Stop the World,” “Vision in White,” and “Empty Night, Empty Cry.” Honestly, they could be plucked straight off a Strokes LP. Also highly influenced by the Velvet Underground, these Japanese punk rock’n’rollers never miss a beat. In fact, they’re perfectionists. There’s even some ‘78 Elvis Costello in “Woo Woo” that they cross over into. Highly enjoyable, sweet 10”. –Camylle Reynolds (Snuffy Smiles)
