Hey, Gravedigger. Welcome to Black Candy, the fourth Beat Happening album. Bret, Heather, and Calvin explore the more sinister aspects of life, with an eye towards the relief that can be found in its simpler pleasures. “Melancholy” is a word that has been used to describe this approach, though Black Candy does include many optimistic moments. If you like it black, here’s a blast of playhouse on fire, pajama party and haunted shadow to propel your day. Included on here is the original version of “Cast a Shadow”, covered by Yo La Tengo and Adam Green.
