Band Alert: San Diego Experimental Electro Psych-Pop Band The Glass Canoe

the-glass-canoeSan Diego experimental psychedelic pop band, The Glass Canoe, released their widely praised album, Through Lianas, earlier this month, featuring dreamy, smooth electro pop songs with Beach Boys-like harmonies, guitar and synth interplay and fusions of various sound samples. Musician friends David Korrigan and Max O’Reilly began working together as a duo after discovering they had common musical interests. Both had played in rock bands as teenagers, and equally inspired by the experimental, neo-psychedelic movements that have taken root during the past few years thanks to artists like Toro Y Moi, Neon Indian and Tame Impala, to name just a few.

Confined to a small upstairs bedroom, Korrigan and O’Reilly began to find their unique sound creating experimental songs through buzzy synthesizers, manipulated samples, the clicks and cracks of drum machines, and the whirling spin of guitars. All of the songs on their debut were recorded/mixed in this noisy little room, eventually adding additional band members Blake La Grange and Drew Galindo. The band’s name was originally created simply scrolling through a playlist; a mix up of words from other songs and artists. As the style of the band progressed, however, the name grew deeper meaning through the thick woodsy tones and clear water-like textures. Spark FM aptly described their sound as a swirled mix of “[Brian] Eno/Bowie, Phillip Glass and some High Lamas” while Rock Revolt added: “The album is essentially a sonic masterpiece.” The band are signed to the small indie label Korora Records.
