    Glorietta have released their debut, self-titled, album on Spotify and Apple Music. The album features Matthew Logan Vasquez, Noah Gundersen, Kelsey Wilson, David Ramirez, Jason Robert Blum, and Adrian Quesada. The full press release about the project can be found below.

    The self-titled debut album from the inspired new collective known as Glorietta arrives everywhere today via Nine Mile Records.
    Glorietta was born out of Delta Spirit’s Matthew Logan Vasquez’s desire to collaborate with some of his closest musical friends, among them Noah Gundersen, Kelsey Wilson, David Ramirez, Jason Robert Blum, and GRAMMY® Award-winner Adrian Quesada. The band officially came together last year over the course of a nine-day recording session in a rented house in Glorieta, NM, just outside of Santa Fe. With Vasquez as the hub, all involved were connected in one way or another, some old friends, others meeting for the very first time. For nine long days, tape ran constantly as the new family of collaborators developed a wide-ranging passel of creative ideas and songs into a unique and singular vision. The players were joined midway through the sessions by the one and only Nathaniel Rateliff, who drove straight through the night to join the party (and lend vocals to the LP’s “I Know”).

    The result of their labor is GLORIETTA, an extraordinary melding of six one-of-a-kind voices that add up to a distinctive and truly special debut album.

    Glorietta will celebrate their eponymous debut with an epic U.S. live schedule, highlighted by festival performances, intimate showcases, and a full-scale headline tour set to get underway October 5 at the legendary Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA.

    Pretty good record. Doesn’t have the greatest flow from beginning to end, but that doesn’t seem like the intent for a project like this.

    who told you this room exists?

    I'm really enjoying this record. Had no idea about it until it was posted in the new music thread. I agree that it does sound like a compilation, it's hard for it not to with so many different voices leading the songs, but I enjoy every song so I won't complain.

    Favorite track:
