MARC WITH A C: Obscurity: CD

Marc With a C is a polished one-man singer-songwriter act of really poppy rock’n’roll to the point that it borders on more pop than rock, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The songs are catchy as hell, and while they sound rather sugary on the surface, there’s some jaded, snotty sentiments lurking in the lyrical content, especially when Marc warbles about the hazards of modern social media. All in all, the record is kind of like biting into a lemon doused in sugar; it’s one of those records that I don’t think I like, but then I catch myself singing the songs as I travel from room to room in my house. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Self-released, marcwithac.bandcamp.com)
