The Fall - Grotesque (After the Gramme)
100
*the 100 rating*

Never an intellectual thing it's an instinctive instinctual thing.

Maybe you didn't love it or 'get' it the first time but there's always a way in.

And then at some point you find that you kinda have an individual unique relationship with each song.

How weird is that: Each song a complete world unto itself. Whenever you put the record on whether you learn more or just let it wash over you, each song works a particular magic that the other songs don't deliver.

Hi! My project Act Tragic finally completed our sophomore album, IN THE AFTERLIFE. We have spent the last year using GarageBand on my iPad to record and mix this record, so we know it isn’t professionally produced but we make due with what we have. It is influenced by indie rock, alternative rock, folk, and many more genres with influences ranging from Depeche Mode to Bright Eyes, Modest Mouse to New Order, Radiohead to Death Cab, and many more! We would love to hear your ratings and reviews of this project so we can grow as artists and keep doing what we love!
