Silver in the Darkness ep that I unleashed on an unsuspecting blogosphere a few weeks ago. These two records, helmed by the brothers McLay (Bret and Mark) are the summation of Brave Tears shatteringly slim discography. "Mystery Boy" is a strong harbinger of what was to follow on that forthcoming ep, boasting an indelible synth line that thoughtfully doesn't mire the song in the more pedantic 'wave' trappings so prevalent during this Huntington Beach outfit's years of operation. The flip, "The Last Good Time" is a conventional, yet effective singer/songwriter ballad colored with flourishes of piano. Fair to say they don't make 'em like these anymore.
