Edison Glass
A Burn Or A Shiver
Credential Recordings

Indie Rock can be defined as either a genre of music or the way in which a certain type of music is produced. Edison Glass is one of the first bands that I've heard in a long time that I think really fits into the genre of Indie Rock.

This is their first album out in stores and already it's meeting an agreeing audience. There's something about their sound that just mesmerizes you. If you took their album name A Burn Or A Shiver literally, then you would have a good idea of the experience you get when you listen. Some of their songs like "Today Has Wings", "Angelic In Heart", and "My Fair One" give you a Burn, an energy that permeates through the speakers and gets your feet tapping. Where as the other part of their songs like "Starlight", "This House" and "You Mean The World To Me" send a Shiver through your spine, with the intensity and emotion of the lyrics. I can see Edison Glass going on tour with The Fray and having all of the fans equally impressed by both the opening band and the main act. I always enjoy an album that seems to have a story behind it. With 13 chapters this CD is a captivating tale of honesty, dreams, and memories.

So, do yourself a favor, go out and pick up A Burn Or A Shiver and give yourself about an hour of free time. Then just sit and listen. You'll be taken away with this story of four guys from Long Island and their 54 minutes of Indie Rock.
