CAIN MARKO: At Sea: CD-R

Michigan’s Cain Marko play mid-tempo, strained vocal, Hot Water Music punk. What’s garnering this EP repeat plays are the rock-solid drums and the expert knowledge of songwriting dynamics. The changes between parts are always smooth, but never predictable, and usually marked by a perfectly planned drum fill. I’ll file these guys alongside Make Do And Mend as Current Bands Who Are Making A Tired Sound Vital. Four songs.
