Mark Berube

A far cry from his folk work with the Patriotic Few, this record with muliti-instrumentalist/vocal collaborator Kristina Koropecki and producer Jace Lasek (Besnard Lakes) is infectious (“Carnival”), old-timey (“Confessions to a Streetlight”) and tribal (“Ethiopia”) while still being a solid indie pop record. Berube’s smooth vocals make it easy for him to weave through genres on a single disc, and they’re all the more complimented (and made stronger) by Koropecki’s constant presence, especially on the Hawksley Workman-esque ballad “Queen and Country” and the Eels-y “Mississippi Prom”. Not something that immediately jumps out at you, but a lovely addition to a solid catalogue.
