New Haven bedroom pop songwriter Glambat and Monroe emo band Snowpiler have released a split EP of new music, I Feel God in this Chili’s Tonight, via Hartford label Funnybone Records. It features four tracks from Glambat and three from Snowpiler.
I Feel God in this Chili’s Tonight is a welcome collection of songs from two of CT’s underground class of 2019. On the Glambat side, songs like “Brasil” and the new version of last year’s “Cole Gate” are noisy, relationship-laden confessionals with a sardonic lyrical bite. On the flipside, Snowpiler follows last year’s Tape I with more instrumentally driven movements of soft, elemental emo. Both artists complement each other to a surprising degree, each track zigzagging from each artist’s unique emotional and alt-pop sensibilities.
Glambat is the project of New Haven musician Emily Alderman. Snowpiler is made up of principle songwriter Nick Restivo (Guitar/Vox/Harmonium), Tim Marzik (Drums/Guitar), and Mike Held (Bass). Glambat’s songs were engineered by Pat Dalton. Snowpiler’s songs were engineered, mixed, and mastered by James Palko.
Glambat and Snowpiler are playing a release show at Mac Gallery in Middletown on May 25th. Event page here.
