Market is the musical project of producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Nate Mendelsohn. The band's new single, "Scar," is a doozy. It starts off like a fairly normal song, or as normal as an indie rock meets glam rock song can be. And then "Scar" just cycles through genres. It has some elements of cowpunk, orchestral music, vocal harmonizing, and others. It reminds me of early Beck when his music had a more cut and paste feel to it and could wildly change sounds while still keeping the same song structure. This is a wonderfully weird and inventive song that even people who enjoy their music a little more straightforward will be able to enjoy.
Nate Mendelsohn says of the new song:
You can watch the video for "Scar" below. The Consistent Brutal Bullshit Gong is due out April 29 on Western Vinyl, and can be pre-ordered/pre-saved here. For more on Market, check the band out on Bandcamp and Instagram.
