FCC: 3, 5
1. Tiderays (4:57) Starts off with a slow, electronic buzz. Melody doesn't really begin until a minute or so in, and even then, the entire song is cloaked in electronic buzz.
2. Acetate (4:54) Lots of different voices build until they’re shout-singing nonsense like “the apple’s on the orange’s ground.” Noisy (but you might like that).
3. **Comrade (4:35) FCC: Shit, fuck. Classic Justin vocals. Instrumentals sound like longing. Last 1:10 features some heavy auto tune (think: Woods, but heavier).
4. **Byegone (4:23) A song about setting sail, that sounds like setting sail. Some nice lyrics here. Constant harmony, dynamic melody.
5. *Alaskans (4:56) FCC: Shit. A gentle, slow ballad. Just Justin and a guitar (mostly). Last 1:07 borrows audio of Charles Bukowski reading the end of his poem "The Shower."
6. *Dancepack (4:19) Twangy congregation of guitar chords opens up the first 0:45 of the song. Justin conveys anger and betrayal in this song as he repeats the refrain "Take note, there's still a hole in your heart."
7. Keel (4:32) This is one of the more abstract pieces-- lyrics are scattered and seemingly random. A soft rattling in the soundscape makes you feel like you're following Volcano Choir into a dangerous forest and you don't know why...
8. Almanac (6:29) Electronic pulse throughout the entire song kind of starts to drive your brain crazy, sounds old school video-gamey. Some nice lyrics shine through in the latter half: “I’ll be dancing on your footsteps.”
