CD REVIEW: Marah "Life Is A Problem"

Life Is a Problem
For a band that has put in over a decade of touring and writing and recording music, Marah never cease to make their music interesting. Their newest release has them going a little lo-fi and a whole lot stripped down to their roots. The music on the new album is raw and personal, and has a quality that makes the music feel more indie than ever before. Songs like "Valley Farm Song" and "Put 'Em In The Graveyard" fit right in with the band's rootsy and gritty feel, that still has them chanelling greats like Springsteen and Cash. Marah has done it again, and despite the album's lo-fi production quality, the rawness and the truth in the music makes the recording shine.
