Album Review

As one half of Pulseprogramming and a touring member of Hefty's somber darlings L'Altra, Marc Hellner had his plate full without issuing this solo record. Marriages is simply another victory lap for this Chicago musician. Teaming up with Telefon Tel Aviv's Joshua Eustis, Marriages falls in line with his L'Altra and Telefon Tel Aviv contemporaries to present a suite of heartfelt somber songs that blend acoustic and electronic textures seamlessly.

The only small gripe is that Marriages is too short; even though it's just the right size for a release of this style, the breathtaking nature of the album leaves a feeling of wanting more. Here's hoping a follow-up isn't too far in the future.
