Filled With Guilt & Diamonds runs the gamut between more accessible pop songwriting and noise music that is heavily influenced by modern classical and avant-garde composition. "Painted Lady" is intricately arranged shoegaze pop and includes Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors) on upright bass. Its explosion of color at the end is in stark contrast to the mechanized horrors of album closers, "Sugar Bear," a voice and noise piece including Charles Cohen, and "Catch a Falling Knife," an avant-garde chamber pop song rife with organ, baritone sax, piano, harp, and noise. The album represents the schizophrenic nature of Br'er and showcases the two primary focuses that exist in Schurr's songwriting: blistering pop arrangement, and dissonant noise music.
Released as a limited edition 180 gram vinyl. The record is packaged in a screen printed, double gatefold sleeve with the lyrics laid out inside surrounded by ink drawings. This release includes a bonus track called "Centralia." Only 400 will be available! Comes with a digital download link!
