Stolen Jars (NY) -- Each track on glint, Stolen Jars' visual EP, starts with an impossibly small sound – a keyboard briefly glimmering in warm light, a finger sliding down the neck of a guitar, a chord strummed with just enough space in between the strings that each note sounds alone.
These are the small spaces from which Cody Fitzgerald starts. Fitzgerald, the group's songwriter and center of gravity, started writing as Stolen Jars in 2011, and in its evolution his small and intricate introductions have grown into full and powerful statements. glint finds beauty in brief moments of reflection, elongating them with deft chamber orchestration, sorrowfully penned lyrics, and vocal performances from Fitzgerald and collaborator Molly Grund that guide each track from tension to reconciliation and back again.
Following the success of 2015's sophomore LP Kept – NPR's Bob Boilen named Stolen Jars as one of his top ten bands to watch at CMJ, the Deli Magazine featured the band on the cover of its CMJ issue, Stereogum and Consequence of Sound premiered the album's singles, and the Village Voice ran a feature on the the band's songwriting practice – Fitzgerald sees glint as a lens for his collaborative process.
