Glassbones aren't doing anything that hasn't been done before, but as evidenced on the Portland quartet's debut EP There's Still Time Left, they're doing it very nicely. With taut guitars, rolling drums, and nice-guy vocals sung with a tinge of kerosene burn, the band spins out a slightly woolly version of post-grunge radio rock. Glassbones probably have a few more steps to take before they definitively make their imprint on the world at large, but all the elements are here: solid melodies, a command of dynamics, and a lack of conceit that allows the listener to accept the songs at face value. One can sense Glassbones is capable of venturing in a few different directions—jagged dance rock, or whiskey-tinged country rock, for instance—and it's this balance that keeps There's Still Time Left an intriguing listen.
