Glim Dropper is a Philadelphia based rock trio comprised of Dan Kauffman, Rob Schnell and Ben Geise. Glim Dropper performs the sort of soaring, melodic music that is the reason rock ‘n’ roll stays great, and that is evident on their 2014 release Heartsick Phenomenon. In 2012, the Philadelphia 3-piece released their debut album Last Days of Analog an eight-song collection that helped them to become a local favorite: the band won Out&About magazine's 2013 MusikArmageddon competition held at Wilmington's Grand Opera House; in 2012 the band was included as finalists in The World Cafe Live’s Beta Hi Fi competition and they were the judge’s choice in Out & About Magazine’s MusikArmageddon. In addition to winning Best Guitarist for 2012 and 2013 in WSTW’s “Hometown Heroes” annual awards ceremony, the band was nominated for Artist of the Year and Best Live Act in 2013, and for four additional awards in 2012. “Last Days of Analog” presented a diverse set of musical ideas (the title track was recorded in an all analog format, for example), and the band shares a sophisticated sensibility that resulted in radio attention around the United States as well as frequent positive reviews from music media outlets and bloggers. Their new 2014 release, Heartsick Phenomenon, launches from those solid roots.
A "glim" is an antique word that describes a shard of light, a fractured brightness, a glowing point of focus. "Glim Dropper" is also the crafty name given to a long-con, a singular scam that only works where there are both patient accomplices and a very greedy victim. The con is rare because getting the details and elements just right to pull it off is so complex, but, like a really good rock ‘n’ roll band, when it comes together, it works spectacularly well.
Glim Dropper wishes to promote federal, state, local, and personal responsibility, through sincerity and syncopation.
