Quilt is a fitting name for the Boston trio, as they knit, sew, and crochet American musical styles from the past five decades into some fantastically colorful and trippy pop songs. In addition to the jangly guitars and semi-lucid arrangements are the eternally haunting and beautiful harmonies of members John Andrews, Anna Rochinski, and Shane Butler—these kids sound like they're California dreamin' in Beantown. Quilt's music takes on a dreamlike state, particularly over the course of the 13 songs on their great new album Held in Splendor. There are a lot of bands these days that consider themselves "psych," but Quilt is genuinely great, druggy music. Pick a chemical, and choose your own adventure.
