Room 213 (Glass Vice)
Crank this to 10.3 of 11 - Editors' Pick
Genre: Garage rock
Sounds Like: Bo Bud Greene, Transition, The Jesus Lizard
Homeland: Atlanta, Georgia
The wildly diverse garage and psychedelic rock trio have delivered an absolute gem
Ten tracks commencing with hardcore punk further circling a deluge of euphoric introspect
Tremendous chemistry and vision. Raw and detailed hitting blissful angles
Pulling in influences from some of our favorite early 90s bands but molded into their own masterpiece
Yes garage rock might be the backbone here, but vertebrae extend outside the skin into progressive, jazz, and math rock surfaces
Track by Track Breakdown
1. CYOJ (3:37)
Punklicious muffled snaps... Check Ya Oil Jack!
2. Bluebilly (3:59)
Blues infusion and subtle swing will grab you as this track morphs so well into Crunch
3. Crunch (2:54)
Matthew is fucking brilliant on this track. A percussion masterpiece.

Darker heavier edge as the trio dive into illness and overcast days.
5. Genuflect (4:15) Standout Track
Majestic, wild melodies. Intriguing lyrics take you to another place.
6. Ikejime (3:01)
Jazz interlude fucking works to perfection. Cleanse the palate.

Spiraling psychedelic fretwork in this epic track….perhaps the best use of the Wood Block we have ever encountered.
8. Squingent (5:34)
Wet bass fills this brilliantly titled track.
9. Glass Vice (2:58)
Back to the garage rock roots with the title track. Fuzzilicious and raw.

Filler closer, nothing to be seen here.
Sixpoint’s hazy IPA ‘Meltdown’ at 8% ABV is the perfect match to accompany Glass Vice. A lush, hazy, juicy IIPA with ripe tropical and bright citrus characteristics, and a soft, easy finish. Loaded up with enough dry-hops to melt your face and distort your outlook on the day.
