Glitterer - Life Is Not A Lesson [CD]
Cat. no: 277992
Release Date: 26th February 2021
Life is Not a Lesson is Glitterer’s second fulllength album, featuring Ned Russin, bassist/vocalist of seminal hardcore-punk band Title Fight.
This time Ned has produced the record himself, notwit standing some recording and performance help from his twin brother, Ben, and some other friends, as well as mixing and mastering by Arthur Rizk (Code Orange, Power Trip).
It may surprise you to hear that, irrespective of worldly doom and gloom, the new songs are even catchier and bigger-sounding than those from his 2019 release, Looking Through the Shades. With roomier drums and more electricguitars-per-square-inch than ever, Life is Not a Lesson has a way of evoking an alternateuniverse version of Guided By Voices, one with a hardcore-punk background.
Life is Not a Lesson proves to be a rigorous reckoning with the life of the mind at a time when there’s not much life outside the mind.
