'Glitter Glamour Atrocity' is White Hills’ second album, originally self-released in January 2007 but remastered and rereleased in 2014.

'Glitter Glamour Atrocity' is a snapshot of the band in the midst of an incredible burst of creativity, and was recorded during the same sessions that produced 'Heads On Fire' and 'Abstractions & Mutations'. Sonically, it is radically different from anything else coming out of the New York underground at the time, and it set the template for the singular concoction of heavy psychedelic music, krautrock, and a worship of pure sound they have explored in different variations ever since. Throughout the album the band explores themes of greed, misinformation, war, hypocrisy and their outcomes within the world’s political and economic systems, presenting these weighty topics with the same air of mystic understanding that underpins their music. 'Glitter Glamour Atrocity' includes the song “Under Skin Or By Name,” the longest running staple in the band’s live set, which the band performed in the acclaimed film 'Only Lovers Left Alive' at the request of director Jim Jarmusch. It is one of only two performances in the movie, which is enamored with the music making process and record collector culture.
