Known Pleasures

Inspired by the Beats, other local musicians and early Post Punk, Mardou made waves in 2013

Mardou calls its music “Post Punk/Noise Pop shit,” which is as good a descriptor as any. The fresh-faced local quartet had a fruitful 2013, dropping a pair of addictive EPs that recall myriad sonic antecedents (most notably Joy Division and Sonic Youth) yet are intriguing enough on their own to yield genuine excitement about what these guys might conjure going forward.

Idiot Glee is the guise of Lexington, Ky.-based musician/singer/songwriter James Friley, whose passionate Pop sound has garnered attention from all over the world. Though he largely uses electronic instrumentation, Idiot Glee’s recordings can hardly be described as “Synth Pop,” showing a more classic sensibility inspired by the likes of Harry Nilsson and Roxy Music.

Mardou is a young Cincinnati band that’s made a name for itself as an energetic Post Punk quartet. Having played their first show May of 2012, the members of Mardou have released their debut offering of four songs, known as Cardigan EP.
