Glimmermen is a Dublin-based threesome made up of members of three Irish bands: Boxes, Jackbeat, and Holy Ghost Fathers. Debut album I'm Dead, out August 20 in the United States, captures them recording at Baltimore's Magpie Cage studio amid Hurricane Sandy, with former Jawbox frontman J Robbins producing. The title track leans toward ska, and video selection "This Town" toward rootsy barroom pop, but "Angels & Devils" is a brittle, sweat-soaked ranter that brings to mind Canada's late, great Constantines. The forces of light and darkness collide in fractured bass-and-guitar interplay and raw-throated bellows.
