After eighteen months or so of improvised rehearsal sessions in Shropshire cellars, Glowpeople have finally got their thing together and released a shiny discful of tunes to the world. Having evolved out of the promising but ill-fated Neotopia and various other Midlands outfits, they are now an emerging favourite on the more "out-there" edges of the UK festival circuit, having appeared at Kozfest, Unorthodox Paradox and others this past summer, and going down a storm.
As others have said, the music contained here is mainly instrumental with the odd well-timed sample popping up. The treated trumpet and trippy percussion standing out, but all the players put in a good showing, often veering off from the main theme and later returning via a series of interesting interludes.
Probably best enjoyed in a sunny garden with the accompaniment of a jazz trumpet or two, if you like your music well off the beaten track and on the edge, then things... may be just what you need. And if you get the chance to see them live, do it!
