Marah in the Mainsail with Ball & Chain


  • July 11, 2018 | 7:30 pm

Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Minneapolis- based Marah in the Mainsail. With layers upon layers of dynamic turns, from the hopeful highs of “Fox hole” to the guttural darkness of “the Great Beyond.” Between Durry’s true grit voice and Mercedes’ tender subtlety there’s a vast array of narrative and stylistic elements. Their sound is made with imposing and wild jungle drums, soaring brass horns, growling bass, and shimmering spaghetti western guitars, all blanketed under a sinister vintage organ.
