March On, Comrade
Fort Wayne band March On, Comrade’s self-titled EP brings an ethereal “post-rock” flow, with all members of the band working on the arrangements. The five-song EP offers up a loose, lyrical (and sometimes melancholic) feel that’s perfect for listening to while lounging in the sun or floating on a pontoon.
