Brief Candles – ‘Provisions’

brief-candles-provisions

Brief Candles are back with a new single called ‘Provisions’! The Milwaukee mainstays have announced a new full length is on the way, expected this Fall through Guilt Ridden Pop. ‘Provisions’ has an angular, post punk feel a la Sonic Youth. Thumbs up!

Brief Candles – ‘Olympic Sleeper’

BRIEF CANDLES TOUR

Gotta love the intro to Brief Candles latest video ‘Olympic Sleeper’. The Milwaukee-based band performed the song with LED bracelets and LED lights on their fingers, which were layered to create a painting of the music. Pretty cool huh? This tune is the opener from their 2013 EP ‘Newhouse‘. Catch Brief Candles on tour stateside with Dead Leaf Echo and Lightfoils this week – see dates at Bandcamp.

Piles – ‘Liquid Ice’

PILES - 'PILES'

Balls out post punk from Milwaukee’s Piles! The band’s debut EP hit the interwebs this week (download). The seven track collection is raw and unrelenting, case in point ‘Liquid Ice’. You can almost hear the sweat!

BRIEF CANDLES - 'NEWHOUSE'

On October 1 Guilt Ridden Pop will release Brief Candles ‘Newhouse’ EP featuring the opener ‘Olympic Sleeper’. The Milwaukee rock act has dedicated (and named) the release after their late friend Mike Newhouse. It follows Brief Candles third record ‘Fractured Days‘, released back in 2011. ‘Olympic Sleeper’ opens with a raw post punk feel before dropping into a well placed half time breakdown. It builds to a noisy wash, with a crash and burn conclusion that’s absolutely brilliant.
