Dark but also pretty and noisy rock. I’m not sure if this is the proper descriptor, but I would call this drone rock. Really cool stuff that channels late Swans - baritone, sick vocals and lush, but noisy plods. The percussion doesn’t rely on traditional snare dominance or anything like that. I can definitely hear some no-wave and Joy Division in there too. Indie rock friendly, but also for those of us who reside in the dark, twisted caverns of alcoholism and regret. Check it out. FCC on track 3, 7.

1. Dark insistent plod with chanting vocals, electronics and subtle noise. (3:04)
*2. Strummy pretty guitar, big sick downer anthem, somewhat straightforward percussion and accessible(?) choruses. (3:25)
3. Organ sustained drone, too many FCCs. (1:59)
*4. Out-Interpols Interpol here, with a bruising droning guitar pattern, and continuously threatening to erupt. (4:11)
5. Lo-fi, industrial drum machine glaze, marching 1/8th note bass march, a rhythmic, nasally wail. (3:25)
6. Sleigh bell cutesey, slick, organy Magnetic Fields. Really poppy. For you indie poppers. (3:46)
7. Found sounds by the ocean, awkward a capella strangeness. FCCs - don’t play it. (1:43)
8. Double tracked drawl behind some simple bass, celestial, swirling effects. (2:42)
9. Maybe Angels of Light is closer here - banjo, western ¾ gallop and whistle, but still with a Gira feel. (2:48)
*10. Trippy ambient guitar twiddling and layering over a sustained guitar drone. Here’s the late night track for you. (4:58)
*11. Another great rhythmic, lush plod with some distinctive trumpet, noodly electronics, and double tracked baritone command. (3:46)
12. Long, looped, drone piece that layers distorted guitars and pretty feedback. DJ awyeh is going to play this like 50 times. (13:14)
