Gloria “In Excelsis Stereo” – Howlin Banana
Album: “In Excelsis Stereo”
Label: Howlin Banana
Released: 18th November 2016
Memories are made of this! Nostalgia is the keyword with Gloria’s debut album “In Excelsis Stereo” for it perfectly captures the sound of the 60’s. It’s recorded in Kerwax Studios, France’s best analogue studio, and you can tell, for the dreamy and fuzzy guitars sound like they could come straight from a Jefferson Airplane record.
A b-side though, for the songs aren’t quite as catchy as the greats that Gloria is trying to measure up with. But mixing up that Jefferson sound with the girl-pop’s sound of bands like the Ronettes is not an easy task, and there is definitely something to say for the way they did capture some of that spark.
