Friendly lite-psych with a menagerie of new sounds
2014 | Label: Mexican Summer

The Boston-based trio Quilt diversifies the friendly lite-psych of their self-titled with a menagerie of new sounds on their sophomore effort Held in Splendor.

Quilt--Held In Splendor

thedifferentdrummersoundtrack

Quilt is one of only a few psychedlic-era influenced bands that manages to avoid sounding redundant or cliche. Held In Splendor is a strong sophomore effort that lives up to the band's patchwork name by taking their sound in many different directions. Strong tracks include the riddle-like quality and insightful lyrics of "Arctic Shark" to a dreamy take on the Byrds in "Mary Mountain," the folk-pop of "Tie Up The Tides," the garage-pop of "A Mirror" and "Tired and Buttered," the friendly yet dreamy "Secondary Swan," and the acoustic yet urgent quality of "Talking Trains." Yes, they have room to grow, but Held In Splendor leaves me looking forward to the band's continued development.
