musicjunkie Did already listen yesterday (March 19) to all the tracks, they were online then. For me actually the first track is not the best, felt a big increase while listening. Was an instant buy. Now I have to be patient to listen again! :) The transparent electric blue is limited to 100.

about

While GLEN ́s previous album CRACK “switched in and out of different moods with a sense of widescreen dynamics and penchant for extended narratives that were shaped by their cinematic endeavours”, their new album PULL! is even more consistent in their wandering through the glens of nearly unmarketable instrumental elegies rejecting despite their haunting melodies any assignment to traditional rock aesthetics, similar to the uncompromising deconstructing energy of the avant-rock movement citing “there are no waves, only the ocean”.

Eclectic guitar sculptures on PULL! loom up to elegant mesmerizing structures of free improvisation, meditative minimalism and multidimensional layered soundscapes. Pursuing an abrasive reductionism GLEN merges disparate styles and contrasting textures to a unique sound of tempting narratives, vertiginous swelling dissonant chords, melodic patterns and abstract noise.

PULL! was mixed by german producer legend MACK, who started his career in Giorgio Moroder ́s Musicland Studios working with bands like Marc Bolan ́s T. Rex, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, early Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Sparks, etc. and of course became famous as the producer of Queen.
