Snake in the Radio
Mark's earthy voice and lyrics embody a sheen style not unlike Magnetic Fields, Ennio Morricone, Lee Hazlewood and Nick Cave getting together to drink moose blood and play four-handed Texas Hold 'Em
As visceral an album an artist can make without actually spilling their guts directly onto the recording console, Snake In The Radio is rife with mossy ballads and interstate rockers crackling like unrequited CB transmissions. This debut solo album is just as weird and beautiful and poetic and magical as a midget in a David Lynch film.
Snake In The Radio sees Mark reunite with longtime ally and legendary producer Steve Fisk (Nirvana, Low, Posies, Soundgarden, Screaming Trees). Undeniably charming and melodically infectious, Mark's earthy voice and singular phrasing and lyrics embody a sheen style not unlike Magnetic Fields, Ennio Morricone, Lee Hazlewood and Nick Cave getting together to drink moose blood and play four-handed Texas Hold 'Em in their leaky cabin in the forest primeval. And you better believe they are playing for keeps...
Band includes Johhny and Jim Sangster, Micah Hulscher (Margo Price, Andrew Combs, Hurray for the Riff Raff) and Maggie Bjorklund.
Plus guest stars Steve Fisk (Pacific Northwest recording legend!), Heather Duby (Sub Pop) and Jerry Battista (Dusty 45s)
With a voice that'll set the hairs on the back of your neck to attention, Mark has crafted a spooky and soulful musical love letter that haunts the uncomfortable divide between Saturday night and Sunday morning.
