Chicago-based project, Marathon Runner has released their album, Better Days Ahead and its single by the same name this past June. I actually ended up listening to the whole album rather than just the single and it’s really a great collection of poems told through the hollow and haunting tones of its lead vocalist and lead guitarist.
I really applaud the vocal mix on the whole album, it sits right where it needs to – as part of the whole project. It’s not some “Vegas” mix or a victim of the over-produced. Songs are honest, sonically-pleasing and showcase nothing but the song. Better Days Ahead is a keeper and enough to please any discerning indie music fan.
