Beyond Our Control by State Shirt
Life is Easy is a disturbingly serene look at unhappiness and desolation. This is a collection of nine songs recorded entirely live in State Shirt's bedroom studio—using a technique called live looping—along with an array of electronics, guitars, and his voice. Each song on the album was written and recorded live in one day—often starting out as an improvisation. Gently traveling from weird ambient swells, ghostly harmonies, funereal rhythms, strange beatboxing, and disconcerting noises, Life is Easy takes you on a mournful march to the darkest corners of hopelessness.
