Hang Time
Self-Titled
Kilby Records
Street: 12.14.12
Hang Time = Real Estate / Klaxons + Grandaddy
You’re going to want a spaceship for this one. This album is defined by its lush instrumentation, dripping with cosmic flair. The guitar rhythms are jangly with just enough feedback, and occasionally angular enough to border math rock. The keyboard and synths are wacky and syncopated all at once. The vocals don’t get in the way either—they often fuse right into the sound. Hang Time’s Facebook photo is a perfect visual of where this album takes you mentally—it’s definitely out there. “Turquoise” is a synth-rock gem and highlights the band’s debut. Don’t miss their album release show Feb. 9 at Kilby Court.
