Bird Prey / Brighter Sky Now! / Acrobat Twin Records
Boy, were his friends right when he said that his music was psychedelic rock. Like the Beatles’ “A Day in the Life”, songs in this album segue mid-song into a mash of musical distortions. I could also sense some indie, hard rock, and alternative rock influences mixed in with the techno sounds. Favorites: 2, 5, 6. RIYL: The Killers No FCCs.

1. (5:07) Mid/Fast. Distorted guitar riff in the background gives the song a dark mood. Nice bass riff. Echoey vocals. Awesome light strumming gives a tense yet floating mood. Brooding.
2. (3:57)** Slow. Contemplative, mellow. Echoey vocals. Folky strumming meets airy guitar riffs. Blend of distorted noises against light gentle strumming in the end 0:30 seconds before the song ends--makes me thing this is indeed psychedelic.
3. (3:25) Mid/Fast. Starts with organ-like intro, then transitions into a nervous/mischievous guitar riff that is 70s-esque.
4. (6:06) Discordant guitar twangs until 1:20, where it explodes into low and loud banging drumbeats. Gives a dangerous mood, like you’re being chased. Becomes quiet again at 3:30 onwards, where single piano tunes are interspersed with throbbing beats.
5. (3:58)* Mid/Fast. Upbeat yet dark and brooding. Builds up to an amazing, Hendrix-esque guitar riff at 3:00.
6. (4:21)* Slow, soft with light strumming, then beats build up and becomes louder around 2:10. Amazing hard rock guitar riff at 3:40.
7. (3:44) Slow. Grungy guitar intro. Very dark, and the breathy, echoey vocals make it more haunting. Noisy and disjointed, but definitely psychedelic.
8. (3:08) Mid. Very hypnotic. Angsty Voice is muffled like that of The Killers. This song has indie influences.
9. (5:56) Slow. Starts off with marching beat. Mellow and languid, with light high-pitched guitar riffs interspersed with low-pitched throbbing beats. Just noise in the last 0:30 seconds of the song.
