Lost Balloons (Ex Marked Men, TX)
RAZORCAKE.org Magazine #91 (USA) March 2016 It would not be outlandish statement to say that I worship at the altar of Marked Men. I know I am not alone. I get excited every time I hear that a member of that band has a new project going because I know it will be quality. Lost Balloons can be added to that growing list of amazing records. A two man collaboration featuring Jeff Burke (Marked Men, Radioactivity, et cetera) and Yusuke Okada (Suspicious Beasts), my first reaction was that sonically it falls in with Mind Spiders (featuring Marked Men and Radioactivity band member Mark Ryan) more than Burke´s other projects. i like that I am not familiar with Okada´s other bands But I think I am going to have to hunt them down because I really like what he is doing here (musically, as well as all of the artwork). In a nutshell, if you´re familiar with Jeff Burke’s music you know hat to expect, well-crafted songs with incredibily depressing song titles. (“I water a tree (called depression)” and “Murder Me On Stage” instantly come to mind. As you would expect, I can´t recommend this record enough. – TY Strangelohold
