The Marches – Good With Words Compilation

The Marches

The Marches quickly made a name for themselves with their 2008 debut (4a.m. is the New Midnight), a dark yet vivacious labyrinth of Motown horns, hip-hop grooves, and electronic quirkiness. Having gained some notoriety for their unorthodox mashups, the LA-based outfit was recently tapped to contribute a track to a new compilation, Good With Words: A Tribute to Benjamin Durdle. The album, conceived by Pop Matters editor Evan Sawdey, pays homage to the influence of a virtually unknown songwriter from Illinois. For this celebration of inspiration, The Marches give us “Big City,” a soulful elegy with breathy vocals and echoing piano chords that takes the band into uncharacteristically atmospheric territory. The song and album are available for free download here
