Get Some: Digital Single Released 6/21/2019 By The Glides – their 10th studio recording just in time for the first day of summer, Get It!

What is alternative retro groove? It’s how the Glides describe their sound.
And the retro groove in that equation should be obvious to anyone who’s seen their latest video, “The Ballad of Big Scotty,” which isn’t a ballad at all if what you mean by ballad is a sentimental slow jam.
But it does tell the tale of Big Scotty (oh, that kind of ballad) over a horn-driven funk groove that’s blessed with an opening riff that swaggers like the Black Crowes covering a different Otis Redding song and a lyrical shout-out to “Theme from Shaft.”
The Ballad Of Big Scotty Music Video
“”Go Go Go” whose title track is an infectious blast of old-school pop-punk with post-Ramones buzzsaw guitars and gang vocals shouting the title. Other tracks are straight-up rock-and-roll with the sort of guitar licks everyone from Johnny Thunders to Dave Davies borrowed from Chuck Berry, taking a funkier turn on “The Next One.” – Ed Masley – azcentral.com
“The Glides have been on my radar for most of the year, and when they released “In The Night” about a month ago, the song completely got my attention. It’s an interesting combination of blues rock and grunge that recalls the vibe that I dug about Seattle band Mother Love Bone. It has a touch of metal dressing here and there, most noticeably in the vocals that occasionally sport an occasional Ozzy fixation. Near the two-minute mark, these guys go into this drum solo, immediately followed by a guitar solo, and it kills me every listen. I have no idea why. The results are pretty clear from “In The Night” that they can rock with some of the best in this town, and I hope to see them doing exactly that after the release of their debut record.” – Mitchell Hillman – Phoenix New Times Music
“One Time (Ms. Gadway)’ by The Glides Amazing energy with fun sticky lyrics that get you out on the dance floor.” – Jacqueline Jax – AVA Live Radio
