Songs About A Sick Boy
If an individual is so damn sad, then why not just down a handful of pills with a bottle of cheap whiskey on top? Or better yet, follow the true kings of sadness and stab yourself in the gut a bunch of times. Stephen Howard, the main man of Quieting Syrup has mastered the craft of crybaby emo gloom with solo debut Songs About A Sick Boy. “Passwords to a Fort Full of Pills” begins the first chapter of boring and somber tunes that Howard presents the listener with. Suggesting that Quiet Syrup’s music is down-tempo is obvious and to say it’s a downer is blatant; the brutal truth is that there’s actually an audience for this garbage somewhere in backwards America where dudes wear makeup and eyeliner and have really bad swoop haircuts.
