Idiot Glee

Lexington, Kentucky’s Idiot Glee is back in town, playing three shows this weekend: tonight (12/2) at Cake Shop with Devon Williams; tomorrow (12/3) at SUNY Purchase with Yacht and Dom; and then Sunday (12/4) at Cameo with Celestial Shores and Phillip Seymour Hoffman (the band, not the actor).

If you have yet to hear Idiot Glee’s album Paddywhack, which takes ’60s pop styles and smushes them like a half-remembered dream, you can download standout track “Trouble at the Dancehall” at the top of this post and stream the whole record at the bottom of this post. Says Tiny Mix Tapes:

There is a sense both of harmony in the broadest sense — a textural and gently mouldering oneness — as well as a charmingly naïve solitude that brings to mind the classic figure of the outsider artist. It’s in the integration of these tendencies, the tender cultivation of tendrils connecting internal and external, the sacred and profane, that Friley’s nightbloom shyly emerges and thrives.

In addition to the album player below, you can also watch footage Bleary Eyed Brooklyn shot of Idiot Glee from one of their CMJ shows, as well as the “King of Baby Land” video.
