    It's in songcraft that Black Marble shine (though that's not to give the expectation of overt hookiness, which would miss the point, moodwise).

    The masks only serve to augment a record whose textural complexities and depths sink in further, quietly addictive, play after play.

    The album is not without its bright spots, as much of the Brooklyn duo's soundscapes waver somewhere between engaging and downright daring.

    A Different Arrangement might not be the kind of album that one could cozy up to on a sunny summer day, but on a cold, wintery night it just might be the kind of sound you want to hear as you burrow under the blankets.

    A Capable full-length debut from the Brooklyn darkwave duo. [Oct/Nov 2012, p.127]

    Strong debut LP from Brooklyn coldwave/darkwave band Black Marble. Buried underneath dark synths is a strong pop sensibility. Fully appreciated through repeat listens. Full Review »
