The Glass Notes - As The Building Crumbles



Holy shit. Just got an email from the singer of The Glass Notes. He emailed me a track of his & I am SO BLOWN AWAY by his voice that I Soundclouded this for you to hear... one of the BEST MALE voices I have heard in years!


Think Jeff Buckley, Black Crowes, Robin Zander, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin. Fuck, I dunno. JUST AMAZING.


Listen to the whole thing and imagine him doing this live on my show.

We haven’t played in over a year or more, excited to play the old favorite’s for you all.

Robb Benson, former front man for Dear John Letters, fronts this Seattle power-pop band who have gone from a two-piece studio project to a four-piece live band on their sophomore release. The songs are based on bassist Jake Uitti's poems, which Benson composes around, and his expressive voice is the album's highlight, particularly on songs like "Glass Notes," which allows him to effortlessly transition from the high end of his range into falsetto. There's a slight twang that hangs over the whole thing, making the album a kind of power-pop/Americana hybrid, like Soul Asylum as interpreted by The Jayhawks.  - Dave Lake (Seattle Weekly Review)

The Glass Notes, As The Building Crumbles 

Jake Uitti plays bass here too and writes the sublime, winding, soulful lyrics for this brother-band to The Great UM, which kind of makes me nervous about reviewing both in the same round-up. But Robb Benson (vocals, guitar, songwriting, you might remember him from Dear John Letters), Perry Morgan (drums and bomp), Tim Dijulio (swinging bluesy folky rock lead swirls) do with 70s deep-album rock what The Great UM do with 60s anthems, and they both superbly compliment each other (socially and musically). You need your novels and you need your short stories, your 45s and your double-gatefolds, to make a bed-sit proper and appealing to comrades. It's hard to imagine a better match of poet and vocalist than Uitti and Benson of late, the latter capturing a way to sing the often-abstract grasps at desire and sanity with all the humor and honesty intended by the verse. As The Building Crumbles rewards frequent relistens, but it's not just those excellent lyrics, they've been turned into songs of melodic invention and confident rockandroll playing. Again, this isn't genre-bound music, and any implication of time period is possibly me grasping at a way to describe a feeling back when I was stoned underneath a neighbor's trailer on a muggy summer night. It's their second outing, and floating through all the great images and sweet guitar I eagerly await.
