Quicksilver Daydream is an experimental psychedelic-folk band based in Brooklyn, New York. Their recordings combine brooding, surrealistic lyrics with a nebulous mix of mellotron strings, woozy synthesizers, soaring guitars, and reverberating vocals. Like the true innovators of Psychedelia, Quicksilver Daydream looks beyond tradition, creating a modern sound awash in electronic oscillations and rhythmic evocations. Employing both the mechanical and mythical, the band paints sweeping, symbolic landscapes, conjuring worlds that vibrate between the hallucinatory and nostalgic.
It becomes easy to get lost wondering just what punk should sound like in 2016. Well, I’m going to lobby for something like Shop Talk. Formed by members from both Liturgy and the Pygmy Shrews, the band delivers a sound that’s so immediately compelling that I was smitten from the first jagged riff... dirty, catchy, and threatens to burst at the seams any second
New York City based songwriter, Nathan Xander is a troubadour in the Texas sense, when he’s in Texas. Or in the California sense when he’s there. Or the Chicago sense, oh, OK. You get it. The man writes like he Travels: well and often. He’s as familiar with Brooklyn as his hometown of Union City, PA, Gillian Welch as with X.
