band quilt from boston

Quilt are two girls and a guy from Boston keeping it idiomatic in the great rock and roll swindle.

Three part harmonies, drunken melodies, stuff that reminds me of Beta Band and Califone, mixed with the sugary stuff from Montreal circa early 00s. Or just endless tracks of America stretched out on reverb and sticky, catchy hooks.

A quick trip to their Myspace yields a bunch of country-tinged numbers like “All My Friends Are Ghosts” and “Disco Music For Trees” (that's what you get when you invite a banjo for dinner) but the two downloads supplied by dear friend Richard over at Rose Quartz (and now down below, here) lose the blues for some upbeat riffage.

Quilt, “Thee Elephant Tusks”

Quilt, “Three II”
