As much as I liked “Bodies Of Water”, I thought that Make Do And Mend took a giant leap forward on 2010’s “End Measured Mile” with their slicker take on post-hardcore. Two years later they’re back already with a new full-length (their first for Rise Records) and holy shit, they pulled it off again!
If you have heard their previous album, then “Everything You Ever Loved” doesn’t hold any surprises. That doesn’t mean it’s any less impressive though. There’s just something about the way these guys come up with the most amazing guitar leads, how they play with dynamics and top it all off with gruff vocals and big choruses, that sets them apart from the pack. Check out “Disassemble” or the more mellow “Drown In It” and get to know your new favorite band!
Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
