Windows rendered obsolete, opaque in frost; the neighborhood, barren…

Mark Webber worked on Plenti during the winter of 2012, each session taking place in the early hours of the AM. He arranged the set—naming both tracks after streets in Toronto—for The Cold Show, an interdisciplinary art exhibit held in an unheated space, centered around the feeling of being cold, both physically and emotionally.

Plenti is available at bandcamp.

Great Marble | What You Need

For about a year now, something’s been pulling Toronto’s Great Marble towards pop. They first appeared as a swirl of particles, before getting boxed up and saturated in beige. And now the sand has hissed into their amps too, packed underneath the fretboards of their guitars…this a band, this is Lou Reed and his lover stranded in the desert.

What You Need becomes a 7″ in late September. Hear side B at bandcamp.

Just weeks ago, a Great Marble ground itself into fragmental flow—oddly serene, it was one of the most repeatable scenes to unfold in recent memory. As an untitled, wordless standalone, it could only hint at some larger, more concrete frenzy in the works. Now that initial experience can be considered “Sand” and its cycle points straight to Idiot Box, a delicately active EP of Webber-Sherman arrangements.

It sits (triple-tongue) tied in a bow at bandcamp.
