Last spring I was obsessing over the “Bite Me” cassingle from Toronto’s Marvelous Mark, the slacker-rock solo project of Mark Fosco, who played in the glammy power-pop band Marvelous Darlings alongside Ben Cook of Fucked Up and Young Guv. A few months ago, Burger Records released Fosco’s follow-up to “Bite Me,” the Husband Material EP, and it’s already one of my most-played releases of the year. It’s a four-song set that takes the poppy, yearning alt-rock of his first tape and amps it up with massive, radio-ready hooks and walls of fuzzy, grungy guitars; with its slamming drums and blown-out amps, it ends up like a poppier-sounding Nirvana. Last week, Fosco released a video for today’s 12 O’Clock Track, “I Don’t Mind,” Husband Material‘s second tune. The video’s lo-fi, staticky blur is the perfect visual component for the song’s bummed-out 90s vibe. Check it out below. Bet you can’t just listen to it once.
