“Love Before Breakfast” is a track from the forthcoming and highly anticipated album of Chicago’s Glitter Bones. No word on a release date yet, but this Toro Y Moi-ish psychedelic ride will hold you over until it drops.
Also, here’s a live video of the trio at Schubas playing one of the best songs this year, “Glow In The Dark.”

BIGCOLOUR is the one-man electro-psych project of Chicagoan Brian Brissart. I stumbled upon Brissart’s project through his good friends, Glitter Bones, as they collaborate and play shows all the time. BIGCOLOUR’s new EP, Meshes of the Laughternoon, is nothing but hazy summer music pushing the “chillwave” movement one big step farther. The EP isn’t typical 80s-wave nostalgia though, its more like if Toro Y Moi and Real Estate raised a polite Midwestern kid. Tracks like opener “stork”, tropical “booboo nest”, and drone-y “power stranger” get freakishly expansive for tracks on any EP, and will have you coming back for weeks. I can’t seem to find any physical release information, but you can find the lyrics to all these songs from his BandCamp.

It seems like everyone has that one friend that makes extraordinarily good music for their age. My good friend, Steve, who blogs about films over at Hightop Satchel, told me about his friend from school, Zach, who makes music with a friend under the name, Glitter Bones. Zach sent me his music, and I was more than willing to share this with all of you. Returning The Magic is a glorious leap into a beautiful psych-pop atmosphere. The vocals are distantly hazy, like a tiny figment of your imagination, and the electronics are suburb whether it be dance-y or mega-trippy beats. The 7-minute opener, “Glow In The Dark”, jams into a blissful world, where dancing around in any manner is encouraged. The two middle tracks are the shortest but get to the point much quicker, whether it be a summer fog (“Erial Celestial Vision”), or a lo-fi techno track (“Spell Legend”). “Race To Heaven” is a triumphant finisher to an absolutely excellent release from these young kids. I try not to say this very often, only for when artists actually do it right, but Glitter Bones acknowledge the best aspects of Animal Collective. Now I hope a comparison to Animal Collective doesn’t turn you away, because you’d be really missing out on this.
