Album artwork for Finding Meaning In Deference by The Mallard

a promisingly home-baked debut full of twists and turns that nonetheless felt of the time and lived in, this posthumous release feels like a conversation through time. It's a conversation interrupted to be sure, but one that you should be listening in on. There's an unapologetic maelstrom of dark energy simmering beneath the surface of these tunes, but it never subsumes some of the group's best songwriting efforts yet. The myriad guitar/vocal interplay is sharp as ever, the pissed-off is turned up to 10, but there's an ever-present bop and hook to even the most bummed-out tunes here.
