LISTEN! to Marriages Swirl Up Dreamy Agitation with “Less Than” LISTEN! to Marriages Swirl Up Dreamy Agitation with “Less Than”

Aaaaaahhhh. Sometimes after a long day in the salt lick all you need is an ice cold Bud, a little love from the dogs and a swollen mass of pop-pop that hedges the narrow bet between shoegaze and the new brutalism (extra solace if said sound is complemented by a swooning siren of intederminate origins). So thank you, Marriages (you beatific sonic undoers) for the gigantic “Less Than” (off Salome, due 4/7 via Sargent House) whose relentless pace and even whorl might just be the stuff that keeps me from killing this dusty old bottle of brown to Big Bang Theory reruns imaging life is just one comedy mishap away from being truly great or reasonably bearable or black as midnight in the panther’s eye. You can stream “Less Than” below and go see the band tackle Europe in April. Those dates and album info follow the song, kids. Rockit.
