we’ll make do

make do and mend are from west hartford connecticut.  they have a new record out called end measured mile and it’s fantastic.  researching them on the world wide interweb seems only to reveal the same description over and over again, make do and mend play “post melodic hardcore”.   post melodic hardcore.  another webpage said “melodic hardcore that adds intelligence to the aggression”.  that sounds nice doesn’t it?

this band plays balls out rock music.  it’s heavy.  the vocals are throaty and loud.  there is some melody in the hooks.  there’s some intelligence in the guitar work.  but ultimately, this is a punk band with a dusty box of hot water music tapes under their bed.

i haven’t heard a record i’ve liked this much since the last time i said that.  it’s good.  go and buy it on itunes or amazon or wherever you get your shiny mp3s.

check out “unknowingly strong” from the new album.
