MARC WITH A C: Obscurity: LP

Marc With A C is a pleasant break from much of the indie pop I’ve been subjected to in recent years. The stage name of Orlando-based singer/songwriter Marc Sirdoreus, on Obscurity Marc With A C demonstrates a mastery of blending strong pop hooks and savagely funny lyrics into catchy tunes. From the tongue-in-cheek opener, “Old Man Yells at iCloud,” with its reflections on aging, to creating art that lasts on “Please Don’t Let My Art Die,” Marc With A C also mixes poignant emotions with his humor. Don’t catch him on tour soon, because he tells you on this album he doesn’t tour, but do pick up this, or any of his other releases. –Paul J. Comeau (Marcwithac.com)
