Album Review
Trent Kay
Reviewed 2011-03-16 
Smooth space synth chillwave / trip-hop / electro. Vox a little Blondie, a little Pat Benatar, a little Chrissie Hynde. Musically, this reminds me a lot of Phantogram. Or even Zola Jesus. On the whole, slow warm radio-friendly soundscapes. PJs would play this. SRSLY.

This is the same Mad Planet (duo out of LA) responsible for "All Elephants", which recently vacated the A-File. By the by, I'm awarding Doc Rock the Badass Mofo Award for correctly pegging a copped chord structure off that record as the one from "Unchained Melody"... like five weeks after I called cover foul. Back into the A-File you go, Mad Planet.

Hint: Album title is pronounced "glee-zuh". This is, apparently, a planet that is "perpetually light on one side and dark on the other". Well now.

RIYL: Phantogram, Massive Attack, Portishead, New Monarchs

try: 1, 3
no FCCs

*1. creamy 80s diva vox, pompy, midtempo. spare shimmery synthy guitar. warm, spacey, aggressive. sounds like the new monarchs.
2. slow, chill. heavy, deliberate kit. cool mid-timbre synth line. shimmery vibes. sort of funny crowd applause at the end.
*3. creepy sample start. skippy mid-slow bass-heavy trip-hop, laser synth, horror chords. on the scary side (at first), gets bashy. creamster long-note vox.
4. slowish, moody, lonely. heavy kit. snake rattles, windchill "ooh"s, echoey piano. there are lyrics, but the vox here are instrumentation. early fade.
