Peace @ Glasslands, 12/19/2012
Peace

"This is kind of a long one. Don't get lost in the jam," warned Peace singer Harrison Koisser as an intro to the band's nearly 10-minute song "1998." Sporting haircuts that were more 1992, the UK group looked like an amalgamation of Ride, Primal Scream, Suede, Blur (bassist and Harrison's brother Sam is a dead-ringer for Alex James) and, er, Neds Atomic Dustbin. But musically, the band are a little more of our time, somewhere between the precision grooves of Foals to the proggier side of Mystery Jets. With pop hooks, mind you, when not going on an extended jam. The epic-length "1998" helped extend their six-song set at Pianos last night (12/19), the band's first in NYC. Not bad at all, though I'm not sure America will get as excited as the British music press already is. But perhaps they'll fill the void Wu Lyf may have left.

The Pianos show (early and free) was one of two Peace played last night. Later they hit Glasslands as part of a bill that included L.A. duo Touché, Rarechild and Night Shining. More pics of Peace from Glasslands, as well as shots of Touché and Rarechild (plus Peace video from Pianos) are below.

I thought Arcade Fire was done after Neon Bible," Huh? That album was huge! James Blake sucks - period! Agree on Bob Mould though. He is back!
