***On his debut full-length album as MARKER, New Orleans artist MIKE WILKINSON eschews traditional pop catharsis for total submersion into a blue, luminous tunnel. Guitar, bass, and Wilkinson’s voice are all treated through a variety of outboard and software effects, gently blurring into one another. Written and recorded between 2012 and 2015, the songs distill themes
of isolation and connection, unreliable memory, identity, and the problem of infinite introspection and its relationship with reality. Filled with surprise melodic turns and evocative, vaporous production, Marker is an immersive work of otherworldly pop, encouraging its listeners to retreat inside themselves.
