From behind glasses that add a peculiar sagacity to his cherubic 24 year quite old face, he adds. You should get it into account. Gauntlet Hair happened when we turned to softer stuff, That turned into a mixture. He lets out a loud belch after Rauworth clarifies the band’s progression. Now look.
Speaking at Meadowlark which is always something of a home base for band as Fleischman works there and Rauworth used to, and they still play gigs there fairly rather frequently 3 are in their element. Fleischman, who resembles a youthful Freddie Mercury particularly when he has been spastically ticking away at his trademark clicks onstage sports a mustache and a Lafayette, Colorado wrist tattoo.

About the debut. Recorded and written in one month at Rauworth’s grandmother’s house in Illinois, it has a pensive gaze, more reflective of two’s self imposed isolation than the terse process. Gauntlet Hair returns to Denver after stops at storied venues like Shubas in Chicago and Mercury Lounge in NY for a show at the Larimer on Halloween night. Although, you will expect Rauworth and Fleischman to arrive in Andy guises and Craig gentle. Ok, and now one of the most essential parts. It’s a well-known fact that the pair plays a swirling, electronically based fuzzrock that good amount of have here we go identified as part of a burgeoning Mile lofty City ‘psych rock’ scene, as Gauntlet Hair.

Basically the first few songs the 3 laid down usually were a revelation, specifically Our Scenery and I Was Thinking. Rather a bit of Gauntlet Hair including the ripping opener Keep Time and punchy Mop It Up features intentionally unintelligible lyrics, like much atmospheric material released by such experimental groups as Shout in Tongues. Whenever saying he has been listening to earlier ’80s music now, Rauworth forces a relative contemporary originality, even if Gauntlet Hair was usually spoken of as adherents to Animal Collective and its ilk. Oftentimes rauworth enlightens.
