Art pop duo Gliss release new album Pale Reflections

The multi-instrumentalist duo Gliss dropped their newest album Pale Reflections after a heady recording/mixing process in Berlin, and it's been on perpetual repeat for me. 10 songs merge Kick in Your Heart's '60s garage rock revivalism with newer modes explored in Langsom Dans: gossamers of synth and boy/girl whispers drape over the slow-burn of distortion that's simply to die for. It's hypnotic, it's carcinogenic — it's a brilliant return for the Copenhagen/Los Angeles veterans of the art pop underground, bridging the lustrous textures of The Kills and Beach House. Fans of The Vandelles and The Raveonettes will feel right at home with Pale Reflections' tenebrous instrumentation full of feedback and toxifying hooks.

The entire album is available on Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, and the band's personal label Kraftwööd Musik Fabrik; listen to the title track below. - Ryan Mo

Weekend Warrior, June 6 - 8

Over the past few years Dock Street Brew Pub has been wrapping up Philly Beer Week in style with an always well-attended music festival that has featured the likes of The Extraordinaires, Skeletonbreath, Bardo Pond, and Stinking Lizaveta. This Sunday the festival returns with a lineup that hosts an eclectic dose of jazzy orchestral pop, Eastern European folk, and stoney hip hop, all while staying true to the fest’s West Philly roots. Grandchildren are no strangers to performing at the Dock Street Festival. However, the last time they played was before they released the tight melodic beats of their last opus Golden Age. West Philadelphia Orchestra will be bringing the good vibes with their multiple horns and Balkan dance beats. And while he may be the younger cousin of Questlove, Gliss has come into his own, and impressed with tracks like “Inner Visions”and “Same Shit,”and he should be the perfect way to round out this diverse lineup. Add in plenty of wood-fired pizzas, brews like Pimp My Rye, and a ton of outdoor games, and you have the perfect way to end Philly Beer Week in style. Dock Street Brewery, 701 S. 50th St., 2pm, Free, All Ages - Bill McThrill

Get High w/Gliss at KFN April 25

Hip-hop fans will be treated to an evening of young talent tonight at Kung Fu Necktie. While I was disappointed to learn that Gliss' High on a Weekday won't be available anytime soon, we will get a chance to hear live versions of the songs that he's been working on. I also learned that he'll be the opener for Dock Street Brewery's annual closing event for Philly Beer Week, joining Grandchildren and West Philadelphia Orchestra. Gliss will be sharing the stage this evening with emcee, producer and La Salle University baller Taylor Dunne, who is currently working on his fourth mixtape scheduled for release this summer, and brash newcomer Kylledge, who caught our attention towards the end of last year with Drugs Women Music. Rounding out the bill will be Miami, Florida's Lil Raw. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 7pm, $7, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

Free Download: "Vibe" (Feat. Rich Boy & Charlie Stardom) - Gliss

So we've been hearing about emcee Gliss' upcoming album High On A Weekday for a while now, but there still isn't a release date in sight yet. Now, we're all for getting high whenever, but we're starting to think that it might be time to put down the blunt, and press record, homie...haha. Well, here is his latest single "Vibe," which recently premiered over at Vibe. It's a collaborative effort produced by Bizness Boi featuring Alabama rapper Rich Boy and Charlie Stardom laying down the hook. The song will appear as a bonus track on High On A Weekday as well as part of Rich Boy's upcoming release.
