Turnstile – “Glow On” CD
The third album from the Baltimiore 5-piece, currently (and successfully) spearheading their own career crossover into the mainstream rock/pop arena. And so far so good. Still essentially a hardcore band, but the new direction sends them closer to alt rock/indie pop territory; with moments of dreamy reverb, latin grooves, electonic beats and a whole bunch of mad influences – all of which are super-hooky, and just consistenetly fan-fucking-tastic, (playing whatever they damn well like, and who can blame them, rules are meant to be broken, right?). Fifteen tracks co-produced by the band themselves along with hip-hop producer Mike Elizondo, and featuring the guest vocals of Blood Orange (Test Icicles).
