We Are Temporary: Embers

Embers is the sophomore full length album from Brooklyn based FZB favorite We Are Temporary, aka artist/producer Mark V. Roberts. It seems fitting for there to be a mountain on the cover of this album, as with Embers, Roberts has reached a pinnacle of a career arc that has seen him climb his own inner mountain, from the head of former label Stars and Letters Records, to an emerging artist crafting his own sound, to now having delivered an album that is the culmination of all that has gone before. The eleven tracks are pristine works of synthpop, full of emotional depth, personal demons, virtuoso synth lines, imaginative phrasing and vocal shading, and an authentic artistic honesty rarely achieved by any artist.  The album has both a dark feel and a hopeful vibe. It is work of sublime beauty, lyrical trepidation  and transcendent finality. This album is an absolute must have. Stream and buy Embers at the link below.
