A few weeks ago, Mawrcrest posted a new one — “No Way to Tell” — on their Soundcloud, and I wanted to steer y’all to it for two reasons, really: 1) “No Way to Tell” is a kick-ass tune, and 2) Mawrcrest is a kick-ass band.
Just, you know, general Mawrcrest kick-assery at work here. As they do.
I’d bet money they played “No Way to Tell” for me and the room at Cole’s in early April, because that guitar riff striking again and again and again is way too familiar to have been learned from a few Soundcloud spins.
Not long ago, Mawrcrest amended its name from Whisker Music to Mawrcrest. The switch signaled more than a change in appellation, and you get that from “No Way to Tell.” If Whisker Music was as its name might imply — cute and cuddlesome — then Mawcrest is its matured, much rougher cousin.
I’m digging the new stuff.
Here she is:
