From Ottawa, Ontario, Canada's KEPLER is a culmination of over three years of the proverbial blood, sweat, and tears. "Fuck, Fight, Fail" is at once a dense and restrained affair. Using out-takes from earlier recordings and newly minted material, many months were spent arranging and recording the record.
Suggested adjectives for description of said product are as follows: dark, unsettling, lush, soft, calming, brooding, depressing (especially), uplifting, haunting and pillow-like. One could also talk about "interplay," "textures," "lyrics" and sound fairly intelligent in doing so. Ultimately, the results are more worth listening to than discussing.
