The Martha's Vineyard Ferries - 'Suns Out Guns Out'Over the course of two prior releases - 2010's 'In The Pond' (Sickroom) and 2013's 'Mass Grave' (Kiam) - The Martha's Vineyard Ferries quietly carved out a high-IQ corner of the U.S. rock underground reserved for taut, deathly catchy songs that showcased deft (if get-to-the-point) instrumentation. That the band have been kinda/sorta under the collective radar has more to do with their being otherwise occupied (more on that in a minute) than a lack of artistic ambition; they've slayed before and after a long break, they're back to slay again.

Guitarist/vocalist Elisha Wiesner has previously set the world on fire with the Massachusetts sextet Kahoots and earlier this year released a 63 song (!) digital masterclass in songwriting under the John Pancake nom de plume. Drummer/vocalist Chris Brokaw has previously pounded on things for heavyweights including but not limited to Codeine, The New Year and Obnox, though there's a fair chance you've also heard his guitar/vocal performances, both solo and with Come (as well as an impossibly long list of contributions to the likes of The Lemonheads, Dirtmusic, Thurston Moore, Consonant and more). Bassist/vocalist Bob Weston is internationally renowned for his sternum-crushing work on behalf of Shellac, Volcano Suns and sound manipulation tactics for Mission Of Burma (I've not heard any of the above, but I'm told they're all "ok, if you're into that sort of thing")Add to this workload the tiny matter of the 3 players having spent most of the last 7 years living in 3 different time zones, it's nothing short of a miracle the 3rd and finest Mar
