ABOUT THE BAND
"Taking the influences from every corner of her life and turning them into a distinct musical style is something Loulou Ghelichkhani (Thievery Corporation) does with ease, all en français. In this iteration, her and partner John Michael Schoepf (The Happen-Ins) are putting a slacker rock twist on dream pop. " KUTX
"Five years after relocating to Austin, Loulou Ghelichkhani ( Thievery Corporation) chose to hang her hat, in part, because the music scene proved less rigid than longtime home Washington, D.C., momentum is building for the cinematic dream-pop prism known as Night Glitter. The band co-anchored by singer/multi-instrumentalist John Michael Schoepf and featuring guitarist Kyle Ellison, and the secret weapon Jonas Wilson, turned ears with the Adrian Quesada-produced "Tunnels"/"Radio" cassette, a fetching psych-pop double A-side single. Night Glitter performed to thousands opening for the Black Angels at KGSR's annual Zilker Park convergence, Blues on the Green.
Now, the group casts forth a deeper listen via Hangin' on a Dream. Slow-moving and beautiful, the five-track effort christened at Mohawk unfolds with Ghelichkhani's brokenhearted "Believe," which sounds like Mazzy Star on a lunar mission. An omnipresent force in Austin music – backing giants in the Austin Music Awards and All-ATX house bands, and playing bass for the Happen-ins, Roky Erickson, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Bruce Robison, and Kelly Willis – Schoepf steps up to the mic on Night Glitter's EP. The title track and highlight "Hangin' on a Dream" positions him as a shoegazy singer and impressive songwriter. The sonically rich collection may be Austin's most headphones-mandatory release of 2018." (Austin Chronicle)
