"Sunburned at Midnight" is the first single from Faith of Our Fathers by Glimr.
[Stream & Widget]
The three core members of Glimr -- Michael Temkin (guitar, voice), Chirs (guitar, keyboard), and Ankle The Mimic (bass) -- recorded the album Faith of Our Fathers at two different collision regions of a 1.5 mile long particle accelerator that studies differences between matter and anti-matter.
Considering that Glimr members Temkin and Chirs are both avid science practitioners,
Temkin dropped out of a Ph.D. program in Particle Physics at Harvard to pursue music and Chirs completed a Ph.D. in Particle Physics at Cornell, this album recording oddity begins to make some sense.
What defies a conventional explanation is the fact that the Faith of Our Fathers live track,
"I Know His Blood Will Make Me Whole," was recorded after Temkin partook of some bourbon from Glimr bassist, Ankle The Mimic's prosthetic leg.
More Bermuda Triangle than holy trinity, Glimr lives somewhere in the musical space in between Molly Hatchet, Art Bell, and The Audubon Society. The Vanity Project fanzine says Glimr's music, "wraps itself around a descending pole of post-rock psych sludge that enlivens itself with hints to Magic Band atonal desert blues."
Now everything makes sense!
