Where did I first see Kal Marks? Was it at Shea Stadium, Death By Audio (RIP), or perhaps the Silent Barn (rise from the ashes)? No matter the DIY venue, their music is unforgettable. The trio appears small when they pick up their instruments but they quickly dispel that notion as the viscous envelope of sound forces even the snootiest New Yorkers to undulate their bodies. Kal released an excellent 7″ in December of last year, but my heart was truly won over with Life is Murder so you should start with that one as well.
Noteworthy: My roommate is currently solo-moshing as I listen/review this album.
