about

10th Anniversary Remaster of Marathon Hangout, originally released in 2004.

4 stars From Eye Magazine, August 26, 2004, Summertime Bleeps:

"MN-L, Marathon Hangout (Shortwave) ****

Everyone's talking about ways to bring indie-rock and electronics together; on Marathon Hangout, producer Matthew Nish-Lapidus would rather see the two sides go to war. For every concession to pop structure, there's an effort to negate it: "Today I Can Only Remember My Address" feeds tranquil acoustic strums through a mechanized shredder in Four Tet fashion; "That Was the Last Cookie" halts its percussive build for a two-chord, Televisionary breakdown that practically transforms the song into a glitch "Marquee Moon"; while "Stiff" aims for full-on rock anthem glory with an incessant Sonic Youth-style distorto-riff, but the tentative start/stop rhythm won't give into the urge so easily..."
