I was pretty excited to see Drumming On Glass as part of the Pipeline! at 25 series of shows. Intense, intertwining parts created an atmosphere of urgency as the band served up a satisfying reunion set at Cuisine en Locale.
Sometimes music is an escape. Other times it matches exactly how you feel. Last Thursday evening at TT’s was the latter. Future Carnivores were releasing their new album. I was running late. It was starting to rain. I arrived during The Milling Gowns’ set and was quickly enveloped by their gloomy pop. The darkness settled in. They understood.
The Milling Gowns just put me on notice. I caught them for the first time earlier this year when they won over a Radio crowd. I enjoyed that set. The band’s set at TT’s last week was something else entirely. It was vital. There was urgency. The Milling Gowns are building toward something big. Let’s see how this plays out.
