“Half of these feelings aren’t my feelings anymore / But I guess I could still enjoy the notes and chords / Maybe that’s just the way it goes / We always sing about things that are old.” – Market
Brooklyn based band Market’s new album ‘The Consistent Brutal Bullshit Gong,’ is due out on April 29th on the Western Vinyl label. The album is the brainchild of songwriter/producer Nate Mendelsohn who has combined his experimental music background with a pop sound.
Apparently, Mendelsohn went through a rough patch and spent time writing this album to work through some issues. Honestly, they may become a band to watch.
The music doesn’t really sound like too many other bands. The closest bands that come to mind are Radiohead with a hint of Mazzy Star’s lyricism. My favorite songs on the album are “Scar” and “Looking Back.”
If I could listen to Market’s album anywhere, I would like to listen to it in 1997 in between listening to Mazzy Star and Sarah McLachlan. It’s hard not to look back sometimes. Personally, I think that Market recognizes the old while looking forward. Let’s hope that we can all do the same.
