A bonus track from the upcoming Marcberg re-issue. Assuming this track was recorded at the same time as the rest of his debut, it could be used as a benchmark for Marciano’s progress as an artist during the last few years. By comparison, the singles and the leaked cut-off loosies from Reloaded sport a fuller, more expansive sound; and his writing is slicker these days, his non sequiturs more memorable. And while I loved the stark minimalism of his earlier work, the little extra oomph he’s picked up since then feels like an improvement, a move in the right direction. I consider Marcberg to be a modern classic, but Reloaded might outdo it.
The Marcberg re-issue will be available on October 30th via Fat Beats.
