Late-night practice: Night Marathon and Bad Spring review

Night Marathon and Bad Spring review

Bad Spring – Left Alone

Genre: Pop Rock, Indie Rock, Alternative Rock

Oh, how proud the first that discovered pineapple could be added as a pizza topping must have felt. This is how Bad Spring must be feeling right about now. 

People that insist all the good songs have been written haven’t done too much writing. The reason why stories of any kind survive is that people need them, and there are so many different ways to tell old stories in a new way. One of the best methods to find innovation is Frankenstein-weld different styles together. 

When it comes to music, these kinds of attempts tend to be either great or goofy. For example, you could end up with bands trying to combine punk music pop hits as on the Pop goes Punk compilations. Or, you could end up with brand new forms of musical expression like the ones created by David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, or Trent Reznor. It’s a gamble. 

Bad Spring’s gamble will likely pay off. Who wouldn’t want to hear Teenage Fanclub and Dinosaur Jr. forming a supergroup where J. Mascis is tasked solely with playing the guitar. Only people who like pineapple pizza that’s who. Bad Spring create a breezy, fun, rocking sound that will fall upon many receptive ears. 

Night Marathon – 75

Genre: Classic Rock, Psychedelic Rock

Night Marathon place their light on the dark night of the soul on their classic psychedelic-rock number 75

Nobody knew how fast someone could run The 100 meter-dash before people started chasing each other for a new record. What was the record a few hundred years ago? I’m sure that you can find out, but who really bothers to find out? 

It may have well been a similar scenario when it comes to pop songwriting when in the late 1960s psychedelic imagery and sonic experimentation of all kinds permeated the format. The floodgates were opened. It came at the right time too. From Scott Walker to the Doors to Black Sabbath, the general public was ready to turn and face the strange. 

Night Marthon’s 75 pays debt to those days of artistic fearlessness. The song is a soundtrack accompaniment to Team U.S.A.’s failure in their misguided bloodshed pursuits out in Vietnam and Afghanistan. The baritone vocals on 75 provide the focus with their deep, menacing growl. Here, Night Marathon produce a powerful, pertinent psychodrama about the inevitability of war to solve anything.
