Sasquatch 2015 Artist Spotlight: Quilt

The Boston Psychedelic Rock group Quilt put out the album Held In Spendor to little fanfare early in 2014. One quick listen though, and fans of the The Black Angels to Tame Impala, or Ty Segall should be satisfied with the hazy, sweeping and sometimes driving  garage-psych riffs that Quilt produces.  Although they are New-English (is that right?) and probably Pats fans, North-westerners (is THAT right?) should look past this and check out Quilt at Sasquatch 2015.

If you are brand new to the band, check out these songs first.

Quilt – Tie Up the Tides
Quilt – Mary Mountain
Quilt – I Sleep in Nature
Quilt – Saturday Bride

If you have heard some Quilt before, I suggest checking out the newest release of theirs Quilt In Marfa which has the 26 minute bliss-out track “Milo” as well as a new version of “Mary Mountian”. According to the band’s website during a stay in remote Marfa, TX the beauty of the landscape inspired the group:

Quilt spent an entire day holed up in a small recording studio located near the Chinati Arts Foundation. Surrounded by sun-baked earth, cracked courtyards and cacti, the four-piece set fourth of their existing recordings live to reel – then left the tape running. [1]

If shitty dusty Texas can inspire great work like Quilt in Marfa, I’d love to see what they do when they see The Gorge. Whether they do decide to shred for 30 minutes or faithfully play thier album-true songs, this show will keep the crowd captivated. Expect Quilt as a mid-day yeti stage act, attendees of Cloud Control at last years’ festival can look forward to a similar vibe.

Stay tuned each week leading up to Sasquatch for more Artist Spotlights featuring lesser known bands on the Sasquatch 2015 lineup.
