Fizzle Like A Flood EP

Noisy dream pop, after the likes of Flaming Lips, My Bloody Valentine, Mercury Rev and the rest of that gang. Multiply layered, tons of guitars, synths, processed vocals, very richly produced (you know the drill). Start: 7, 3. FCC: 2, 5.

1.[0:30] Intro to the next track, violin-like synths.
2.[FCC, repeated “Fuck”, play track 7] Mid tempo, noisy, layered, distorted, carries out almost without drum beat almost until the end.
3. Mercury Rev-like opening with dramatic piano keyboard. Slow, dreamy, metallic-distorted vocals.
4. Mid/fast tempo, noisy percussion, electric guitar line over many different layers of sound. Instrumental.
5.[FCC, “fucking”] Piano ballad, slow, distant strumming guitar, synths, heartfelt vocals. Chorus a little cheesy-rock style… similar to track 3.
6. Slow/mid instrumental. Leading keyboard tune, theatrically dramatic drumming. Live (ends with clapping).
7. Mid tempo, clean, heavier rendition of the musical theme of track 2. Flaming Lips rocker, guitars, sluggish drums, noise, multiplied vox. Short appearance of female vox. Live.
