Marriage Pool Blunt

The second full-length from Austin, Texas-based quintet, Marriage, which includes former Black Eyes drummer, Mike Kanin. As with the band’s earlier work, the music is heavy on percussion and distortion – a shifting balance of drums and lo-fi psychedelic gristle, of order and madness. Recommended.
