Cymbals Eat Guitars - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Cymbals Eat Guitars
Cymbals Eat Guitars have indeed crafted what’s easily their most sonically expansive and most rewarding album to date with their John Congleton produced fourth LP, Pretty Years on Sinderlyn Records. Their trademark cacophonic guitar rock and innate propulsion are still abundant, but they’re buttressed by raucous synth and keyboard lines, and an extemporaneous saxophone performance, which enrich when they could easily clutter these songs. The band also worked more quickly and efficiently than they had in the past, facilitated by years on the road in which they’ve played close to a thousand shows, which rendered them a tight, fully- oiled machine in the studio.
