Album Review
a.b. en masse
Reviewed 2017-01-09 
Lo-fi indie rock with plenty of distortion, synths, and punk influences. The band managed to sign to their current label, Fat Possum Records, before even playing any shows, which is a testament to the energy and connection their music establishes. Definitely a refreshing take on power pop, indie rock, what have you—definitely worth a listen!

FCC clean!
*1. (2:52) Vote Thatcher – upbeat tune, great energy as an opening track. indie rock with spacey synths
*2. (3:26) Give Up – interchange between spacey, mellow synth lines and fuzzed out punk rock
3. (3:40) So Long – starry, twinkly synths with an atmospehere of regret culminate in a more traditional punk ending
*4. (3:08) Hello, Dear – pulsing and stringy; small pauses lead to bursts of sound and emotion
5. (3:51) Amazing Grace – punk influences are softened by a smooth and simple piano line
6. (4:18) Terrible Youth – crunchy guitars, good old foot-stompin punk rock
7. (2:53) Blind Kids – starry synths + punk rock combination returns
*8. (3:57) Someone Far Away – melodic, jangly guitar lines
9. (3:42) Real People – acoustic strumming, a delicate synth background
