Artist: GLITTER WIZARD
Title: Solar Hits
Format: LP
Label: Archers Guild
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Glitter Wizards debut LP follows up their "Black Lotus" single with more cosmic heaviness, taking all the aspects of their music even further out. While it lives up to the Hawkwind-meets-Sabbath comparison frequently applied to the band, Solar Hits also showcases Glitter Wizards diversity with brutally-direct metal riffage, spaced-out feedback and electronics, straight-ahead garage punk, free-styling improv mayhem, and even progressive sax/flute/violin interplay (with a guest performance by Steve MacKay) while remaining one cohesive rock record. Although its not possible for an audio recording to show the bands over-the-top glam stage look (Youtube "Snow Crash" for a dose of that), the album unquestionably gives a feel for the irresistible fun of the Glitter Wizard live experience, while adding layers of psychedelic goodness that can only come from time and effort in the studio. And at its core, beyond stylistic considerations, the album demonstrates solid, compelling songwriting from singer Wendy Stonehenge and his band (including underground veteran Doug "Graves", whos worked with Nothing People, Liquorball, Monoshock, etc.). Insert, download card, limited to 450 copies and totally great!" - Archers Guild.
