A few Fridays back, we took a trip — not out of our beloved NYC, mind you, but into the sweet, sweet psychedelic swirl of Quilt. The Mexican Summer-signed quartet had the room transfixed at Mercury Lounge as they held a belated celebration for the release of their sophomore LP, Held In Splendor. New jams like “Arctic Shark” and “Tie Up The Tides” coalesced seamlessly with old favorites like “Cowboys In The Void” and the band’s majestic valedictory offering, “Penobska Oakwalk”. It was such a sweet trip we almost forgot about the polar vortex for a couple hours. Almost.
Sister in spirit Weyes Blood opened things up much as she did at Mexican Summer’s anniversary last year, with another haunting set of cassette tape-backed folk dirges conjured up from another era. Between the rich, 12-string guitar-playing and Natalie Mering’s otherworldly pipes, we were well whisked away even before Quilt took the stage.
