Smart sounds by Idiot Glee

Idiot Glee filled the Old Dirty Basement at J&Js Pizza will music that straddles ambient and pop. Think Grimes, where synth, voice and, in Idiot Glee’s case, pedal loop, merge to make a mood. The Lexington, KY musician was singing lyrics, but the muddy sound at the venue distorted them past recognition. But the artist had enough skill and sense to make the set work.

He looped falsetto vocals with chime-y keys, slowed and sped them up on instrumental sections. He ran the gamut from mellow to alarming.

The artist deserves another shot in a room with decent acoustics. Or he needs the cash for more reliable gear.
