Album Review
Reviewed 2015-04-24 
Debut album from Ghastly Menace out of Chicago. This is definitely in the indie pop genre, but it is actually a really interesting record. Dynamic, cool instrumentation, lots of harmonization etc. RIYL: Grizzly Bear, Spoon, Local Natives, Portugal the Man.

FCCs: 2, 6, 10
Recommended Tracks: 1, 5, 6

1. (3:54) 80s - Great melody, cool harmonies, "And if you’re still looking for an answer/ maybe you should look for something else."
2. FCC SHIT (4:00) Closing - Another mid tempo track, steady drums, cool falsettos, more indie pop.
3. (2:34) Living Together - Down tempo, minimal, flutes.
4. (6:08) While You're Here - For the first two minutes, it sounds like this song was sung under water, then it builds into a fuller more melodic song.
5. (3:51) On Our Way - Mid tempo, very Local Natives sounding.
6. FCC BITCH (5:32) Real Life - Up tempo, this one is my favorite. Cool shuffle on the drums, laid back feel but infectious melody.
7. (6:23) She Won't Stay For Long - Piano and vocals only.
8. (2:06) Shadow Song - Piano only at the beginning, other instruments build in to a song with a jumpy beat.
9. (2:18) Wait - Dpwn-tempo and distant
10. FCC FUCK (2:42) Rooftop Song - 2 minutes of instrumental, weird effects, kind of cool.
11. (4:20) Children - More mid tempo indie pop with a catchy melody.
