Quilt - "Roller"

Photo by Daniel Dorsa
I have no idea how I've gone so long without hearing Quilt. Usually when a Boston band gets up to third album territory, I'd have heard a song or two. I've heard the name Quilt a bunch of times, but just never listened.

Luckily for me, I finally got around to them and checked out "Roller." It's not quite folky, and not quite poppy. It's this great chill, slinky track that is the exact opposite of whatever I decided they were in my head. Instead, it lives in this great territory with Jenny Lewis' The Voyager and Liz Phair's Whitechocolatespaceegg. 

Quilt's third album, Plaza, will be released on February 26th on Mexican Summer. Be sure to listen to "Roller" below. You can find them online here, and their current tour dates are below the video.

  1. While this place gets a little crowded and you might have to push through occasionally, it's hard not to mention that a definite plus in this event space NYC is that you'll rarely have to wait on line in their large bathrooms.
