Here’s a video of “The Lure of Dreams,” an excellent song by Glass Hammer from their forthcoming album Three Cheers for the Broken-Hearted, which is set for release on November 3. I’m impressed by the bold funk bass guitar and strong drumming; superb vocal melody sung with real expressiveness; tasteful synthesizer fills and excellent organ solo by Fred Schendel; and a smart guitar solo that’s not at all self-indulgent.
The band all appear to be having a good deal of fun in the performance.
(Note: to keep the video from skipping, you may wish to pause it immediately after pressing the play button, until it loads completely.)
