MARVELS, THE: Cheat to Win: CD

Feb 28, 2008

I forgot how much Staffy’s vocals sound like the Black Halos until I put them on back-to-back the other day. A few line-up changes since the last recording, but no worse for the wear. Michelle adds a nice contrast with female vocals, and she plays a pretty mean bass. This recording captures their rawness much better than the last release. Anthemic, rock’n’roll with a snotty edge. I haven’t seen them in about two years, and they still top my list of live bands. Well worth checking out.
