Glim Dropper / Press

"Simply put, their new album, Heartsick Phenomenon, is an amazing record. The 10 songs on this album are simultaneously fresh and familiar. Driving and dreamy, melodramatic and melodic, it just hits you with hook after hook...."

"...the band nearly blasted off the stage, starting the show at a rocket-like pace. The set impressed all six of the show's judges and fired up the audience, many of whom had walked into the theatre moments earlier with looks of awe, uncertain as to what sort of furious sound had been unleashed....They came up big this year, with a vote count more than twice that of any other band. Combined with their strong performance with the judges, that made Glim Dropper the runaway winner."

"The Last Days Of Analog" is the sort of contemporary rock record that's just a couple of lucky breaks short of becoming huge, as over eight tracks, the band really don't put a foot wrong. They mix up a variety of approaches and styles with an ever-present rhythmic thrust and plenty of pop nous. I suppose The Police are an easy point of reference - there's three of them, they're not shy incorporating a little reggae into their sound and they're radio friendly - but they're no where near as affected as Sting and his cohorts, and they've a greater range of styles to call upon. From the lolloping groove of "March" to the grungy post-punk rock vibe of "Williamsport", Glim Dropper make everything they do accessible and user-friendly. Seriously, a little bit of good fortune and a family size bottle of peroxide and they'd be massive."

“There is a cerebral quality in the band’s performance, but every bit of cleverness was entirely in the service of maximizing the gut-level emotional response of the song. These are not simply songs by a top-notch rock trio playing in a room; this art was built to hit precise intellectual and emotional marks with an impressive balance of off-the-cuff improvisation and rigid discipline and precision. The music was written to be enjoyed by anyone but played to be appreciated by musicians.....”

"This entire CD is comprised of songs that offer much to the music world, bringing back some styles that surely never die. With some new styles that not many bands can pull off as well as I feel Glim Dropper has with this CD. It left me wanting to hear more, and wanting to see them perform these tracks live. I very much recommend "The Last Days of Analog" to all who appreciate the roots of music, as well as to people open to new retro sounds."

“It’s not one thing or element that makes this band great – it’s everything about this band. Should a member leave, I can’t see it existing with just any other drummer, or guitarist or bassist. Truly a band that, collectively, is so much greater than the sum of its parts, Glim Dropper has good things on the horizon.”

“From the second they started playing they were in absolute control of the performance, each musician individually doing his job with finesse and expertise.”
