Three years in the making, Modernstate's sophomore album The Burning Beard guides us through all facets of its creator, Sam Schauer. Recorded in a large room overlooking Portland's darkest avenue, the sound of a working class city embeds itself in the content of the record. The Burning Beard is a desperate record, a living and breathing testament to self-denial, determination, and regret. Schauer's stark musical candor surfaces with lyrical honesty that is easily mirrored by brooding melodic drums and understated glockenspiel. As his baritone journeys through the sharply tragic doom-folk of the album, the city is perched on his windowsill, somehow accompanying his pocket symphony and hinting at the notion that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
