Tagging Satellites - Shoting Down the Airwaves
Graig Markel is a superb singer and songwriter given
his current classification as 'sub-par indie sounding
dude' and may soon break into the 'medicore or better
indie sounding dude' level, but this album isn't going
All the good things Markel does both lyrically and
vocally are cancelled out by Zera Marvel. Ms. Marvel
has a baffling array of ways to ruin a mediocre to
good song from stagnant, lifeless vocals to
melodramatic dreadful vocals, she runs the cycle of
horrible singing mistakes.
Lyrically the album is pretty good, mostly because
Markel wrote it.
If you wanna know what it sounds like, well, it sounds
like a severely crap-ified version of the Red House
Painters. But whereas the RHP break your heart and
make you wanna keep listening, Tagging Satellites
mildly annoy you and make you wanna stop.
