Artist: Brief Candles Album: Fractured Days
Genre: Alternative/Indie Rock, Shoegaze, slightly post-rock
A combination of My Bloody Valentine+Jesus and Mary Chain+post-rock Maybeshewill
Epic Album!!

FCC clean

1. Intro (0.37)- atmospheric, reverb, short intro
*2. 10 Weeks (4.22)- fuzzy guitar, reverb female vocal, bright, revival of 90s shoegaze, messy
**3. Sink or Swim (4.21)- they have their own way to do this, fuzzy pedal+brilliant riffs, gorgeous vocal
*4. Permafrost (4.18)- delicate intro, layered sounds, bewitching atmosphere, wistful childhood memory
*5. The Sediment (4.40)- post-rock intro, tender, duo vocals, melting guitars, and swirling atmosphere, nostalgic sweetness, sentimental, weird loopy ending, *stop when there’s still 30 sec. at the end (weird loopy ending)*
*6. Small Streets (5.55)- bass line stands out for intro, compatible mix of effects and atmosphere, inert, static, yearning
*7. Bitter End (5.00)- resilient, brilliant guitar, etching out the bittersweet instances of fleeting summer days, the solo at 4:15 really pushes you to the point
8. Skylark (5.13)- slow/mid-tempo, reverb male vocal, delicate, scorched beauty, appeals to anyone with a sentimental mindset
9. The Completist (2.49)- natural, sweet vocals, enchanting beach scene
10. Recognition (3.54)- mesmerized by the image it creates, layered and oceanic
11. Nosferatu Monks (0.33)- lurking threats, interim
*12. Knock ‘em Deaf (4.24)- disarmingly pretty, thoughtful buildups and gracefully majestic instrumental passages, dream, hazy
