Album Overview

  • 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.


4. Born in a Weak (5:41)

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.


7. Sifter (9:06)

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.


10. It Comes (2:26)

Filler closer, nothing to be seen here.

Brew Pairing

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.
