Stream Brief Candles upcoming EP Newhouse via Bandcamp.

Releases 01 October 2013

Note from the band: Out October 2013 on Guilt Ridden Pop. The EP was recorded last year by Kevin @ Humdrum Studios in MKE b/c that's what bands do. Especially bands that buy 24 track tape recorders and install them in their basements. We recently came to a revelation regarding our music. Since three of us are originally from Peoria, IL (home of Richard Pryor) and relocated to Milwaukee, and since our drummer is a native Milwaukean (home of Gene Wilder) our music is very similar aesthetically to the seminal films Silver Streak, Stir Crazy, and See No Evil, Hear No Evil. As to the title of the EP, Newhouse, it's dedicated to our friend, Mike Newhouse, who we lost last fall. He was a great friend who I hope is skating some cosmic half pipe whilst trying to pick up women with the line “I can play the Sight of You” by the Pale Saints on guitar”. So to Mike we dedicate the musical representation of Stir Crazy. I'm sure he'd approve.
