Marshmellow Overcoat

Add Date: November 9 

Artist: Marshmellow Overcoat 

Album: On Safari 

Label: Self-released 

Genre: Folk rock 

Comments: There's a nice '70s folk-rock vibe floating throughout most of On Safari, the new LP from the Pennsylvania trio Marshmellow Overcoat. At times I think that lead singer Tyler Calkins is trying to pull off a Tom Waits/Bob Dylan gruff sound (which he isn't good at), as opposed to simply singing (which he does quite well). I'll direct you to standout tracks like "She's a Winner" and "Another Way to Hide," which brings to mind Your Blues-era Destroyer.
