Good, Honest Punk Rock23 mars 2011

Make Do and Mend's debut LP "End Measured Mile" has to be the most promising debut from a band I can remember. It sits firmly in the new "wave" of posthardcore along peers like Balance and Compusure, Touche Amore, and La Dispute. Don't let the posthardcore tag fool you, it's not watered down emo screamo like that genre seems to imply sometimes. Throughout the album the songs retain the same strengths where MDAM maintain an excellent balance of gritty punk rock and melody and catchiness. Highlights include the excellent opener "Unknowingly Strong" which really sets the tone for the album. "Ghostal" features excellent guest vocals from Jordan Dreyer of La Dispute. "Transparent Seas" features excellent lyrics that detail a lack of faith and is also one of the most dynamic songs on the record. "Thanks" is an excellent song which is very downtuned for the band and helps wind down the album. "Firewater" is an excellent all around effort with a catchy chorus, superb beat that's featured in the intro, and in my opinion, the best guitar riff of the album. It also has a great break of strings for an outro which also helps end the album, which truly feels like a physical endeavor to simply listen to (which says a lot about their live shows, go to one.) All in all this is an excellent album for those who like good music that's heavy but not "scene" and catchy and melodic but with no gimmicks.
