Austin post-everything trio Glassing will release their sophomore LP Spotted Horse tomorrow via equally eclectic indie Brutal Panda, but why wait another day to hear 10 new tracks showcasing Glassing’s unique amalgam of suffocating textures, crushing blast beats and black metal-inspired atmosphere? We didn’t have a good answer either, which is why you can stream the entire record below. But first, the band offers a little hint on their motivation behind album #2.

“This album is the result of what we now see as a contempt for illusions, the same illusions that bring others so much happiness,” the band tells Decibel. “We allowed ourselves to become immersed in the austere and when the dust cleared, the plateau we arrived at we simply called Spotted Horse.
