Noted indie producer and engineer Brian McTear (Matt Pond PA, Mazarin, Espers, Danielson, The A-Sides) returns with his third album as Bitter Bitter Weeks. Peace is Burning Like a River is a rock record. As Bitter Bitter Weeks has evolved from a solo project to a full band, McTear returns with his finest songs and best album. While past albums were dark and minimal, this is vast, honest, assured and, dare we say, “triumphant”. It taps into McTear’s work with Mazarin, as well as subtle Eno-esque beds of organ and tape echo, and the American jangle of the 1980s college underground music.

With Peace is Burning…, Bitter bitter weeks has arrived at a new era, presenting an extraordinary album of fully orchestrated memorable songs with featured guest performances by members of Mazarin, Apollo Sunshine, The A-Sides, BC Camplight, The Velvet Crush, and more. There are songs about life and death, mid-air daydreams, cold war apocalyptic fantasy, ghost dreams, hyper-awareness in the last seconds of life, friendship gone sour, apologies to future generations, and much more.
