Artist: Christopher Smith Album: Earning Keep
Genre: Indie Rock
RIYL: Elliott Smith, Sparklehorse, Sufjan Stevens
whispering/melancholic vocal, slow-tempo, sadness
For Elliott Smith/Thom Yorke fans
FCC clean

1. Settling Pitch (5:16)- sadness, subtle and delicate emotions, bleak
2. Knives and Sickles(1:27)- soft
*3. Pillars and Pyre (3.51)- somber, lounge vibe,
4. Young Curmudgeon(1.53)- nostalgia, wistful
*5. Pins on a Line (4.59)- detached; dark, nocturnal, depth of soundscape
6. Earning Keep (1.41)- slacker style
**7. Bitch and Moan Beautiful English (4.30)- whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery, late-night drinking and introspection
8. Chapped Lips of the Mouth Breather (0.41)- no vocal, merely sounds
*9. The Meat and the Marrow (3.51)- a beautifully dream, enchanting midnight, loneliness
*10. Gang of Pricks (3.48)- hypnotic, brooding, rich and sweet but soft tone, tenderness, sadness, fairy tale
11. Old Testament Violence (1:30)- a warm sense of melancholy
*12. Samson (3:53)- bright, atmospheric
13. New West (feat. JP Carter) (4:09)- looping effects, outlier of the album, no vocal, more experimental
14. No Light Could Pass Through Me so I Have a Shadow (4:15)- lurking, solitary light
