Called TFCF, an acronym that stands for Theme From Crying Fountain, it’s an album about loneliness and heartbreak conceived in self-imposed isolation. During a recent AMA on Reddit, Andrew explained TFCF ’s artwork and impetus: I felt like I was married to Aaron creatively, and now that he is gone I am alone in my wedding dress. The music is made in part from the scrapped recordings of what could have been the final Liars album, which only adds to the lyrical pathos.
Solitude allowed Andrew room to ruminate and experiment, and the sonic leaps he makes on TFCF might have taken several albums to accomplish with a fuller band. These sparse, atmospheric songs re-orient themselves constantly: "The Grand Delusional" begins as an eerie campfire song complete with the sounds of the bush, then a woozy drum pattern takes it in a completely different direction.
