Chris Conde - Engulfed In The Marvelous Decay (Album)
By: Fake Four Inc.
Now, Conde is pleased to release their next studio album, Engulfed In The Marvelous Decay, another chapter in their journey to self-discovery. With song titles such as "American Faggot" and "Cancel Culture Blues," Conde grabs the bull by the proverbial horn and doesn't let go for the entirety of the 14-track effort.
Raw, brutally honest and unafraid, Conde throws lyrical daggers with lines such as "I've been called a faggot, I've been called a spic / I've been called the names, to reinforce me as your It / As not a person, or as least not one that is complete / Cuz being queer and brown, to you don't make me a human being."
Coupled with production from Lazerbeak of Doomtree, Nick Sandy, Mid Air, Whatever Cecil, Demitri Crisp and Conde, the effortlessly cohesive project swells with jagged guitar riffs, hard-hitting drums, pristine scratches and an urgency in his often distorted yet powerful vocals.
But Engulfed In A Marvelous Day also comes with more subdued, reflective moments. On "Everyday," Chris dives into full self-examination mode, learning how to question their own ideologies, belief systems and patterns without falling down a spiral of shame. "Everyday the world is different, everyday I must adjust, everyday is a day when I must relearn just how to love" the queer-identifying Texan exhales over a boom-bap inspired beat. The complimenting visual directed by both Wayne Fau and Conde is essentially a day in the life of the San Antonio-based artist; from waking up in their bedroom to skateboarding through the neighborhood, eating chicken and greeting a friend. "Everyday" is an invitation to celebrate the journey of self-reflection.
Engulfed in the Marvelous Decay is available now through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms via Fake Four Inc. The 14 track LP is also available on white vinyl!
