The Glimmers - Whomp That Sucker

Can be exhausting...
The Glimmers - Whomp That Sucker
Great news for fans of slightly punchy, slightly quirky mid-tempo house stompers: The Glimmers have a new album out and it’s chock full of tracks similar in style to stealthy club banger ‘Frantic’ from 2006. And to be fair, who could pass up the chance at a little bop to some nicely twisting 303 burbles and a few well-placed funk-breaks?

The formula works less well in album format; The Glimmers, though perfectly club-friendly, never quite match Aeroplane’s tuneful cathartics, Daft Punk’s conceptual innovation nor Metro Area’s effortless cool. Whomp… can be exhausting, if not grating when heard in one sitting.
