Daniel Glascock Hallucinatory and non-chalant, layers of dusty drums and synthesizers with ancient electricity coursing through their circuits lay out a bed of dehydrated rose petals for you to lay back on and fantasize about machine elves feeding you grapes while a 5 dimensional disco ball emerges from your third eye. Jesus wishes he had been sold away for a bag full of these silver visions. It all goes to show that you don't have to drive out to the coast to find this level of electronic bliss. Favorite track: Argentum Dreams.

We’ve been living parallel with the gods Nimbly venturing to touch the stars Lustrous orbs beckon me on Time and space held cautiously Calculating risk and minimizing fear Future forward racing towards a new dawn Now is the present for just one second As the past chases us with every turn Grasping infinity repeatedly, repeatedly We’ve been living parallel with the gods Nimbly venturing to touch the stars Lustrous orbs beckon me on Time and space held cautiously Grasping infinity repeatedly, repeatedly Grasping infinity repeatedly Grasping infinity repeatedly Grasping infinity repeatedly Grasping infinity repeatedly

Dark Heavens Oh yellow sphere We’re celestial spirits Orbiting Earth and Moon Where the Stars are scattered thinly Who owns the heavens and tames the glowing stars We’re celestial beings You draw me near Dazzling with your auroral smile Luminous outlines of times we’ve spent We gently tease with our complex revolutions Forever moving forward Each day a new turn. It’s as close and I can get When you burn so vividly We’re celestial spirits You draw me near Dazzling with your auroral smile Luminous outlines of times we’ve spent A distant touch leaves me shattered You pick up a piece and hold it dear I don’t reflect, incandescent from within We shine hopefully forever, Where the stars are scattered thinly orbiting earth and moon We’re celestial beings, no time to reflect We’re celestial beings, we’re celestial spirits

Chromosphere 02:36
Time and space held cautiously

Argentum, I get the shivers from you Tales of madness waves of delight Woven in stories told late at night Argentum, drifting through reflecting white Roving star cast you spell on our dreams Cast your spell Cast your spell on our dreams Silver souls align Sliver dreams survive Tonight we see you shine you blink and say goodnight No need to impress You are what you are Move through the night same as the day Argentum, roving star Take your time to lead us far but never astray Argentum, on your journey to everywhere Silver souls align Sliver dreams survive Tonight we see you shine Tonight our hands raised high Silver souls align Sliver dreams survive Tonight we see you shine You blink and say goodnight

Rotating at various degrees A gesture of circles will open my chest To find just one star to claim Corona sends me warmth and peace Telling me stories for my esteem The myth to build a fire Solar eruptions Full emotion Brilliant flares leap to hold me tight Like a comet’s tail Radiating in the solar wind Streaming away Twisting in coronal loops Sunspots expose a delicate core of its intense emotion The energy finds its light again Where space is repeating an infinite flame Forever and revealing Solar Eruptions Full emotion Brilliant flares leap to hold me tight Like a comet’s tail Radiating in the solar wind Streaming away Solar Eruptions Full emotion Brilliant flares leap to hold me tight Like a comet’s tail Radiating in the solar wind Streaming away

You draw me near, dazzling with your auroral smile

Illuminated 03:32
We rotated to close and you You drew too much from me Physical limits reached you went supernova And I was left behind You’re burning intensely Eclipsing our galaxy But lurking beneath it all a dark energy Illuminated, illuminated I can see beyond your glare and how far I can go Illuminated, illuminated I can see beyond your glare It causes our universe to accelerate as we move further away This distance molds my inner being Removing things unnecessary Stripping me to the essential core As I learn what I’ve become Illuminated, illuminated I can see beyond your glare and how far I can go Illuminated, illuminated I can see beyond your glare Illuminated, illuminated I can see beyond your glare Illuminated

We're celestial beings …

about

Monta At Odds is a Kansas City combo led by the brothers Dedric and Delaney Moore. The two have played music together all their lives and have been exploring the Monta At Odds sound since the band’s debut in the year 2000. Dedric's pulsing, melodic bass and Delaney's artfully unhinged synthesizers frame the band's central character, which is fleshed out by a talented cast of musicians and collaborators. For Argentum Dreams, Monta At Odds is joined by area native Taryn Blake Miller, AKA Domino Record Co. artist Your Friend, who contributed lead vocal and guitar on the majority of the album’s songs. The result is a heady sonic pool that has been inscrutably referred to as ‘Ummagumma meets Arthur Russell’s mutant disco at Vangelis’s house.’

Argentum Dreams pushes Monta At Odds’ alternate reality into streamlined consciousness. The music consists of minimal rhythms set to maximum noise, slo-mo psychedelic funk, endless dub echo, and extended-cut warped disco. Live musicians manipulating time and space via knob turning, cymbal cracking, and pedal pushing as they interlock into hypnotic moments of heavenly bliss that seem to hold forever, captivating the mind.

Tales of love, heartbreak, wandering, invention, guilt, and the ravages of time and miscalculation weave the songs on Argentum Dreams together. Nine songs interconnected like a cyberpunk computer network in a secret basement. Nine songs lead to a vision of a dusty future full of lo-fi synths warming their circuits for possibly the last time. Nine songs of haunted vocals pushing through filters to gently hover above your head in a ghostly harmonic presence.
