From The Shelf: MS MR - Candy Bar Creepshow EP (2012)
Candy Bar Creep Show E.P.
Majestically grand songs fill MS MR’s debut Candy Bar Creep Show E.P. With a unique musical physics that is compellingly weighty without being oppressive this short and sweet collection of songs foreshadows greater things on the horizon. Lizzy’s hauntingly breathy vocals seem to be coming across some great expanse. Whether physical or spiritual in nature one can not discern. Disembodied and foreboding her voice is given lift, carried on the wings of Max’s musical arrangements. With a dreamy fluidity that’s nearly hypnotic in nature theses songs are understatedly powerful. Like the tides of the ocean or the tentative hold of the human mind on sanity, this music threatens to carry away its listener if they lose even the slightest measure of focus.
This four song E.P. is a must have and will wet your appetite for a full length album in the no to distant future. Catch this wave early because they are destined to be big.
