Penelope Isles – “Gnarbone” + “Shining Gold” // Andrew McIntosh

There’s something hypnotizing and brilliant about Penelope Isles’ “Gnarbone.”  It takes lo-fi to new dynamic levels, layering chord over chord, building up verse after verse, until it reaches the climactic bridge, which is then filled with a tinge of psychedelic elegance and a bit of indie rock majesty.  This dense piece takes us on a journey that will never be quite over.  And such is what life brings us.

When you recover, kick back with the mellower ride of their latest jam “Shining Gold”.
