Trying to fit Glorious Wondour into the typical taxonomy of local rock bands is a little difficult. It's partly because their presence online leaves a lot to the imagination. Any hints about the new songs they've written for their forthcoming album are non-existent as far as the Internet is concerned. But considering we've heard them play alongside the now-defunct band Mt. Ossa (including at the Weekly's Summerfest bash last June), we realize that even when you have them playing right in front of you, you're not always sure where the music is gonna go. It's the sort of music you can imagine on a slow climb toward euphoria, stopping every once in a while to dance your ass off. Imagine a Day Glo infused of indie pop with a psychedelic bent, tons of effect-laden bass and vocals dripping with delay.

Recently joined by Mt. Ossa drummer Tony Tancredi, the band's original duo Matt "Zigzag" McKenzie and Tommy Dumont are now adding a loud new layer to their sound. Tancredi also helped co-engineer their forthcoming record. Next Wednesday, they take the stage at the Weekly's Plugged Into Local showcase next week at the Wayfarer, alongside The Gromble and Tapioca and the Flea. We spoke with Tancredi about the band's mysterious new sound which will hopefully be a glorious surprise.More »
