'?##Plaza' is the third album by Quilt a name implying a meeting place a crossroads a coming together In the space of ten songs 'Plaza' clarifies Quilt's musical stance of a congregation mixing folk poppsych and wanderlust into a common ground where each form takes on the characteristics of one another to create something wholly satisfying styles and sentiments hand in hand the purest and sharpest distillation of Quilt's group aesthetic to date On 'Plaza' Quilt has pivoted their sound on a new foothold The guitars shimmer squawk warble swell and tense up The organs and synths flow in the background as moodenhancers The drums dig in a little deeper We hear flutes and harps a string quartet grand pianos and Casios feedback and distorted violas Among all these sounds the group's shared and solo vocals showcase some of the strongest lyrics and hooks the band has made to date Plaza showcases a tighter more concise version of Quilt particularly as the members have learned to encourage each other's strengths and allow each other to confidently exist as distinct voices cooperating within a very intimate creative space their songcraft has tightened up their singing now crystal clear vis a vis personal experiences of loss frustration and isolation LP Black Vinyl LP Limited Clear Vinyl
