Chicago-based Tom Meluch's bedroom-crafted visions have become embedded in the hearts and minds of so many thanks to the hugely acclaimed album Precis. Now, as part of the Type 7" series, Meluch returns with Fir. The title track kicks off with rasping, poorly recorded guitars and rattling percussion, accompanying Meluch's voice. Perfect pop music as seen through frosted glass. "Forming at the Mouth" contains crumbling instruments, buzzing effects and a beating human heart -- what more can you ask for than this?
