    After hearing what Magik Markers had to offer before this Lee Renaldo produced beauty you might ask yourself what the hell happened??? But just as the painter can shift styles with the splatter of some paint, bands can and will do the same with exposure to the crowds while touring with big names such as Sonic Youth and playing at music festivals like the No Fun Fest in Brooklyn.

MM have definitely found their groove and the people are getting into it like blood splattered dreams in the brain. Can't wait to hear what's next! Expand

  1. The Markers strip away the most abrasive parts of their previous work, add just the right amount of melodies and structure, and somehow maintain the free-flowing, experimental heart of their music. It's not much of a stretch to say that the results are something of a revelation.
  2. Most surprising here, though, is Nolan and Ambrogio’s wildly successful approach of ballad forms.
  3. It rather gorgeously hums low and disturbing, hiding in the grass like some kind of jungle cat.
