Recommended Album: Gladiola – Off You Go
Boston’s own Gladiola released their third album, Off You Go, last month, and it’s an intelligent & succinct effort. Post-Rock is the genre I’d pin on Gladiola, as they incorporate non-traditional time signatures over a driving bass and jangled guitar. The mix of boy/girl vocals on tracks is a nice change of pace, and the lyrics are cerebral yet strait forward, making for an interesting record, that they’ll hopefully be playing out around town soon.
