In the debut full-length from Nick Perry's Brass Tax, Perry deftly shifts from wistful melodies to speak-singing, allowing the words to jumble around deep in his throat before the clear delivery. "Get the lead out ‘cause the ship starts sinking/Once we leave the shore/There are creatures swimming all around/That want to take us where we can’t be found" he sings on the pulsating "Nowhere," with piano chords arched around gleaming guitar tones and an extended jam outro. The song wouldn't be out of place on a Jim James release. The fiery title track is the real standout though, and gets an early '00s Modest Mouse alt-rock treatment from Portland engineer Jayson Whitmore; the song is catchy, cynical, but somehow uplifting. "Quitters, Inc.," features a Guy Garvey-style vocal and gentle piano and is one of the few sober moments on the album, with a stripped down arrangement and Perry's best vocal performance. Consistent throughout the record are Perry's straightforward and authentic lyrics: "Come on down you’ve been floating in space/You can’t even face your face/It’s time for a change/Life has stopped being strange" he sings on the playfully mischievous "St. Barnabas Waltz." Perry's storytelling is set against restless layers of guitars, drums, piano and cello, which combine to give the album impressive substance and intensity.
