Album Review
Super Chuck
Reviewed 2017-10-26 
Formed in Los Angeles in 2013, Froth first garnered attention with their debut LP, Patterns. Originally intended as a small-run cassette release, the album quickly became an underground sensation in the Southern California music scene, catapulting the band to local fame and prompting a vinyl re-release in 2014. Outside (Briefly) shifts through a diverse and sprawling sonic spectrum of psych-tinged, brooding, and melodic compositions delivered with a kind of nonchalant assurance.

FCC: Clean

Like: Cheetahs, DIIV, Heaters, Meatbodies

Play: 1, 3, 6.

1.Contact (4:58) - Rhythmic, harmonious drone-scape to accompany resonant and relaxed vocals.
2.Shut The Windows (3:47) - Understated lo-fi song with fuzzed-out vocals.
3.Passing Thing (4:51) - Meandering melodies that weave their way among a dreamy haze of clattering riffs.
4.Petals (5:52) - Simple and slow melodic guitar riffs and distorted vocals.
5.Romance Distractions (4:21) - Waves of synth strings and organ swirls or do simple blown-out shoegaze.
6.Sensitive Girl (3:13) - Fuzzy indie pop.
7.New Machine (3:45) - Crautrock tune played with a Lush vibe.
8.Shatter (3:35) - Layers of dark, brooding guitars.
9.Show A Flower A Candle And It Will Grow (4:41) - Innocent ringing guitar notes slowly weaving in a kind bass line and beautiful and vocal melodies.
10.Briefly (3:50) - Melancholic tones and majestic strings that create an undeniably enthralling and affecting soundscape.
