80 degrees in the midnight shade. Just another breezeless night. The crickets and the sirens and the humming of florescents and neon all melting down in the groove. An emptiness it’d be a shame to lose. Except – is that the wind kicking up? Whether you knew it or not, here it comes now – you’re right in the path of Maria’s Hunt.
Formed in 2014 in Chicago by partners Joshua Condon and Eliza Weber, Glyders have kept busy, lighting up shows around town and country ever since then with their mystery sound, on the road if, when and where they could all the way from here to Europe - as well as taking prime time to self-release a couple of EPs (“DIM” and “Lend a Hand”), whose high lonesome wack promised that a Glyders full length would be a real trip.
On the debut single “High Time”, we find Glyders steady-rollin’ into the wind and promise of the highway beyond. They've self-directed a music video for "High Time", featuring their custom chopper, the wide open road and buckets of heavily-saturated Glyders vibes. Fueled by Josh’s spectral vocals and the liquid solid formed by his guitar and Eliza’s bass, Glyders’ mazy spacecraft takes to the air from the empty parking lot out back of the roadhouse and finds an anodyne of the trippy and the wiggy / ghostly places lost and found. Glyders have it both ways, rocking the white line with fervor but also stopping to soak up the fragrance of the purple sage and the queen of the night by the side of the road.
For their first vinyl full-length, the watchword, as ever, is “maximal minimal.” And it WORKS. These kids are up around the bend and in it for the long haul. After a few lineup shifts over the years, they’re settled down with drummer Joe Seger and are fixing their sights on the far horizons. If you see Glyders choogling down the track, pull up and get set for Maria’s Hunt. Pick up their Country Thyme Records debut on LP/CS on January 20th, 2023.
