This week's MP3 offering: "Off-White Noise," by local band Mariage Blanc, from their October EP, Broken Record. The band doesn't plan to record anything new until this fall, but there are plenty more listens left on this fine debut.
Here's what I said about the song in my review of the EP:
"The second song, "Off-white Noise" immediately recalls Wilco's "War on War" and "Jesus, Etc." with its electric piano, organ and touch of early Steely Dan; a nice breakdown dominated by Wurlitzer and strings (played by Liam Cooney and Jim Walton) leads into an extended vamp."
