Album Review
a.b. en masse
Reviewed 2017-04-07 
IAN SWEET – Shapeshifter
Dreamy female vox with an edge. Noisy, raw indie rock/dream pop. Each song has so much going on, but in the best way possible. Solid, solid listen.
RIYL: The Shacks, Best Coast, Jay Som
FCC clean!
Favorite tracks: 2, 3, 6
1. (1:38) Pink Marker – strummy, lost and meandering
*2. (3:42) Slime Time Live – bass dips in and out, leveling out to restless and fuzzed out guitars
*3. (3:59) #23 – like song before, but less focus on bass
4. (4:49) 2soft2chew – echo-y strumming intertwined with vox
*5. (5:52) Cactus Couch – cute boppy tune turns to carousing, dizzy bass line. false stop around 4:15
6. (4:30) Shapeshifter – weird, wobbly, stripped-back
7. (3:59) All Skaters Go to Heaven – mellowed out tune turns raw and slightly dark
8. (5:33) Knife Knowing You – far away, melancholy
9. (4:50) Quietly Streaming – mellow bass lines ring through the noise
10. (1:42) Pink Marker 2 – sounds like a continuation of first track
