MOCKINGBIRD WISH ME LUCK: Goodbye Debris: CDEP

This four track EP is the self-released, first effort by some dudes from Ontario who have the Hot Water Music-style melodic punk mixed with gruff vocals sound all sewn up. This is pretty good. At times, these guys brings to mind the finer moments of Nothington, particularly on the last track “Brooklyn, NY,” which has an ever-so-slight hint of folksy country at the edges of the song. While their sound isn’t entirely distinct yet, MWML are off to a really good start. This is the type of band whose lyrics will eventually be made into tattoos by dudes with beards and camo shorts. If this band is more than a flash in the pan, their next release should be well worth reckoning with. They get my gold star for these two months.
