Glass Famine

Ice cream sundae washington glass famine

Craig and Vincent, who released a handful of great tunes as Casimer and Casimir (Craig was also in the wonderful and long-gone Pas/Cal), are now Glass Famine, and they just put out their debut single, "Grumbling Bellies," which is a pretty, tumbling song. I think one of the aspects of Pas/Cal's music (and the stuff from Casimer and Casimir too) that I always found impressive was the number of ideas packed into each song: there are almost always three or four little sections to each song, and they're all compelling in their own right (reminiscent in some ways of the Unicorns and how their songs often took very unpredictable trajectories). Besides its wonderful restlessness, this song has great details too—to wit, there's some especially fantastic guitar business in the margins of the last minute of this song, while Craig repeats "It's the lie that makes them pretty." Looking forward to hearing more.
