From its chaotically scribbled lyric sheet to the explosive sounds on the album itself, Marah’s fifth studio release is the band’s most deliberate attempt yet at fully capturing their rag-tag Bruce Springsteen-gets-jumped-by-the-Replacements aesthetic. Brothers David and Serge Bielanko write songs that flip between serious to senile, wringing pathos from finger-picked ballads (“City of Dreams,” “So What If We’re Outta Tune (w/ The Rest Of The World)”) and setting the bar on fire with the backroom blitz of “The Closer” or the Faces’ jug-band groove of “Sooner Or Later.” Recorded live over the course of nine studio days and two weeks in their bass player’s apartment, the album feels more like a document of a time and place — that being drunken nights in Brooklyn, Manhattan and the band’s home of Philly — than a concentrated artistic statement. Their mastery of this artless art makes them loveable underdogs: blue collar intellectuals with humane songs to carry them through.
