Record Review: Cereal Glyphs — ‘The Second Hand’

The Second Hand
More charged and visceral than their self-titled debut, Cereal Glyphs returns with The Second Hand, 10 pieces of psychedelic-leaning garage-punk that still values atmosphere and ambience, but kicks a little harder these days. Loaded with Saturday night riffs, wild and roaming guitar leads, somehow simultaneously distant and urgent vocal performances and sharp, steady drums that hold everything together, The Second Hand is the sound of a band working together to make high-powered noise-rock that’s still stamped by their own weird little nuances. Becoming a little more unhinged ended up locking in a more exciting sound.
