Stream a new dissonant ambient EP from Minneapolis producer Makr
Many times when music evokes feelings, it is bright feelings like happiness or joy; even when it is sadness or darkness, it often is in relation to a melancholy that comes from a recent loss, and leaves the listener with a sense that there is a new dawn on the horizon. And then there is Curse the Day That Birthed the Bastard by local artist Makr (Marijuana Deathsquads, Votel, Father U See Queen, To Kill a Petty Bourgeoisie Roniia, etc). This is a scorched earth, everything is lost affair that evokes barren landscapes in a post-apocolypitc world.
Spread out over four tracks that are as abrasively named as the music they represent, this is a harrowing trip that takes you on a claustrophobic headphone trip. Released by Totally Gross National Product, it is record that should soundtrack the long, lonely winter nights here in Minnesota quite well. Close the blinds, lock the doors and stream the EP below.
