Failed Flowers: Demo 2014

Failed Flowers: Demo 2014

One of the newest ventures from the Ann Arbor indie-pop community that includes members of Saturday Looks Good To Me and Bad Indians. This is a sharp, jangly, mostly speedy C86-indebted lo-fi group, with Autumn and Fred both handling vocals. Almost all of the songs are under 2 minutes, and while the tape starts out punky, the song called “Fuck You” is actually slower, quieter, and sadder. Kind of fitting, as is the band’s name, and the lyrics and the general feel of the music; it all just suggests disconnection, things not working out. After all the brooding tension of the short, punkier songs, it takes a 4 minute instrumental called “Episodes” to clear everything out, before the last burst “Matters”. Tape and download available on Bandcamp.
