Boston based Mailman Carl have just released their brand new self-titled LP on Bandcamp. If you're not familiar with these guys, their sound is mostly comprised of a rock/psychedelia infused blend with elements of folk and punk to strike off the balance, and bring in a amalgamation of each member's individual influences to create something that is truly wacky and out of this world. When I first listened to them, their music was all over the place and was kind of hard to find my musical footing at first. But gradually over time, I found my way with these guys and they really started to develop an impression on me with their musicality which is extremely impressive and most evident on the track "Phyrgia", which showcases the band's beauty and their ability to go against the grain of what is expected of them. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to these guys and while it may take you some time to get used to the band's sound, in the long run it's well worth it and you'll find a local band that is all the more impressive for laying out their cards on the table. An intriguing local act that is worth discovering more.
