A SHORT ALBUM ABOUT MURDER, Styrofoam's second, begins with more percussive force: "No Matter What" skitters with snares and digital blipping. It's Just That We Don't Show It" has a miniscule hip-hop sample, used Prefuse73 style in a drawling synth landscape. And even though most of the vocals on "Bad Night is Falling" are obscured by the music, what we can hear of them at the very end is rather disturbing
On the album Nothing's Lost, Styrofoam worked with artists Valerie Trebeljahr (Lali Puna), Andrew Kenny (The American Analog Set), Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie, The Postal Service), Bent Van Looy (Das Pop), Markus Acher (The Notwist, Lali Puna), Miki Yoshimura (Munk) and Alias. On November 11, 2012, Styrofoam went on indefinite hiatus, posting on Twitter "Styrofoam will be taking a break for now or for ever and ever. A Short Album About Murder. I'm What's There To Show That Something's Missing.
