RIYL: She Pass Away, The Cure, Martial Canterel, Epee du Bois, Automelodi, Sleep Museum, Staccato du Mal, Lederest
Brooklyn duo’s third album and second for NYC label Wierd. Miss Liz Wendelbo from French / Norwegian and Sean McBride from Maryland. Unique atmosphere.
FCC clean

*1. Sets and Lights(4.43)- dark, nuanced, brittle/thin synth lines mixed with The Cure atmosphere, aerial vocals
2. Untitled(2.33)- no vocal, eerie effects
3. Years Before(5.39)- convoluted, twinkling sharp synths, layers, male vocal (kind of Morrissey?)
*4. Corrupt(3.46)- underflow of rebellion/disturbance, gloom, male vocal
5. Blue(3.39)- asymmetric beats, gloomy, starkly, deserted
6. Italy(5.04)- mid-tempo, digital-only, Italo disco assault
7. Autumn’s Edge(3.39)- sticky texture, bouncy, new mood
8. The Staircase(3.52)- metallic texture, strained, ghastly
*9. Desert Rose(4.44)- surreal, dark, underflow of intensity
10. Open Walls(4.08)- more intricacy, chilly gloom
