Concert | Afro beat pop + Folk bossa nova
Weave + Year of Glad
Deep inside, Dijon
mar 26 jan 10 | 21:00
Los Angelena et la bassiste Ivory Lee Carlson forment Weave ! en 2008 avec leur amie et batteuse Nicole Turley comme exutoire aux mélopées variées et grondements tribaux qu’elle a trouvé bouillonnant de son esprit inconscient. Le groupe réserve et figure en tête d’affiche d’un mois de résidence à l’Echo, leur night club préféré avec leurs amis Warpaint, Rainbow Arabia, Fool's Gold et We Are The World, parmi d'autres, comme « supporting acts ». Lorsque Haut et Turley quittent le groupe, les membres restants enrôlent le musicien et performer, Alex Black (eighteen-thirty gallery dans Echo Park) et Jenny Sayaka Norris, respectivement à la batterie et aux claviers. - Dijonscope


There were only a few revellers at the Paragon, when Year of Glad took the stage at 10:30 p.m. Introducing himself in French, the unassuming fellow with a shock of curly hair makes up the whole band. I was shocked to hear a such a forceful voice emanating from Year of Glad's baby-face. His falsetto was pitch-perfect; evocative and mournful.
Out of the half hour set, the song FirstYearUniversity stood apart with its angst-filled lyrics. Despite its name, it wasn't about the raucousness of starting school, but rather about bitterness and the devil. The haunting deliver of the song reminded me of Bon Iver.
Year of Glad's concentration was hypnotic. In fact, he was so engrossed in the music that he barely noticed his fingers were bleeding all over his guitar.
For someone so youthful, Year of Glad makes a distinct nod to his musical fore-bearers. While he shares little in common with polka bands, he asked the audience to clap to a polka beat; perhaps in an attempt to make himself less nervous. - Noisography

Bio

Treating vague and affecting sounds to the pulsing feeling of the fields, Year of Glad came together with hopes to break from what was projected and inevitably indulged but never requested. It's all uncertain but it feels all right.
