Bitter Bitter Weeks

Brian McTear is the name and the man behind the one-man-band and album, Bitter Bitter Weeks. McTear, better known as an award winning producer in Philadelphia, released the solo debut two years ago, but since I am just discovering it now, you will have to bear with me.

The music is unadorned and yet... still very nearly adorable. Guitar strummed, banjo plucked, keys tickled songs - all tied together by McTear's liquid rasp, tailor made for indie stardom and yet the music is too quiet for your average indie rock fan. The two songs, "Sage" and "You Paralyze My Heart", sound like great demos for some soon to be released indie band's debut. One that I would definitely want to get a hold of. Although, I must add that the new track, "The Endlights", is a step closer to indie nirvana and definitely does not resemble in any way, shape, or form, even the most amazing demo - it is the work of a maturing artist with still fresh ideas.

from 'Revenge' released July 2004:
+ the endlights

from his debut:
+ sage
+ you paralyze my heart

bonus: + revenge
