{RECAP} tei shi, glass animals

Tuesday night I strolled over to U Street Music Hall for the most recent All Things Gold show featuring Glass Animals and Tei Shi.

Brooklyn's Tei Shi kicked things off with her incredible voice. She immediately convinced me of her talent as she looped her vocals, making it sound like there was a choir of angels behind her on the stage all from just her voice. Speaking of angels... Tei Shi covered Beyonce's "No Angel," which, after Monday's night show, completely floored and delighted me.

Her performance was beautifully varied, starting slow and looping, having me wish for her duet with Kishi Bashi on an album of lullabies. It then transitioned to much more intense and powerful, culminating in the performance of an upcoming song "I'll Behave" that was incredible. Cannot wait to hear more from the future pop sounds from this lady.

Brits Glass Animals were up next. After comparing them to my favorites, alt-J, I had set my sights high for this band and they did not disappoint. The lead singer's voice and the bands interesting arrangements were unique and sexy. I loved hearing "Black Mambo" and "Pools" and the crowd favorite, which has been stuck in my head ever since the show (and has me craving peanut butter) is hands down "Gooey."

They wrapped up their set with an a-mazing cover of Kanye West's "Love Lockdown." I highly recommend checking out their full album on Spotify! AND check out more photos from the show from friend of TIOJ Brian over on All Things Go!

Next Up: Stacey's catching The Paper Kites in Philly next Friday!
