Marvelous Mark - Crushin' LP
Amazing debut LP from the former Marvelous Darlings man. After his debut 7" earlier this year 'Bite Me, Mark is back with his infectious pop. Marvelous Mark is the moniker of Mark Fosco, formerly of the band Marvelous Darlings, which also included Matt Delong from No Warning and Ben Cook who plays guitar in Fucked Up.
Essentially they were a Toronto punk supergroup "before they were famous", but their limited catalogue -a string of seven-inches - stuck like staples within a cult fanbase long after they called it quits.
"Sounding a bit like Big Star with power-pop overtones and a pop-punk driving force, Crushin' is a collection of songs bursting with feeling that sound like they were written while the sun was either going down or coming up."
FFO Weezer, Tony Molina, Teenage Fanclub.
Malos Modales - Cronicas Terrestres 7" EP
Totally excited to release the debut EP from Malos Modales. Hailing from Monterrey, Mexico, 4 amazing Garage/ Pop songs. If you are into The Marked Men, YOU NEED to check these out.
Malos Modales are a punk band of people who technically aren’t old but could make some people question this very fact. Formed in Monterrey, Mexico, the band features some familiar faces in its lineup, namely Kiko Blake from División Minúscula (one of the most successful and emotionally charged bands from the past decade), and Johnny Vzz and Hugo “Scrap” Zapata from electroparty mainstays She’s A Tease (Chacho Zapata rounds up the band). They converged and recorded some demos, then decided to take the proper steps to formalize the band. They have recorded a self-titled EP at their rehearsal space with the help of a 4-track tape recorder.
In short this is one of the best EPs we have heard for ages
