Souveräner 60ies- und 70ies Pop incl. mehrstimmiger Vocals, schönen Melodien, Sitars, mit Anklängen an Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles und Galaxie 500. Following thier 2011 self-titled debut on Mexican Summer, Quilt return with their sophomore album 'Held in Splendor'. 'Held in Splendor' is is an audacious pop-rock record with cascading harmonies and billowing textures, punchy rhythms and snarled guitars, wonderful depth and resplendent peaks. "Mary Mountain" takes hazy Summer of Love memories on a mid-summer road trip in a gleaming muscle car. "Tired & Buttered" invites Booker T over for an energy-addled jam in the garage. "The Hollow" twinkles like Fleetwood Mac and Galaxie 500, with sweet singing backed by the lap steel sighs of young acoustic guitar star and longtime Quilt pal Daniel Bachman. Held in Splendor is an album of personal poetry and public questions, confessions and spirations-really, these 13 tracks are their own playground, brimming with the sort of unapologetic energy and wonder that turns simple songs into absolute anthems.
