The brilliance of Glass Jar is all in the build. A narcoleptic haze of cymbals and android effects sets the journey in gear, creeping and crackling with murderous expectancy. Through this suspense-riddled carp pushes a crisp synth flourish that escalates as a vivid pool of intergalactic keys and jackknife percussion, juddering and grinding to an uncontainable, untameable pace. Perfectly weighted, it’s a cut that scales rhythmic vicissitudes with astonishing ambition. Quite likely the most incessant and oblique track of the year, this is the sound of Gang Gang Dance at its exhilarating best.
