Based out of Austin, Texas, Madmartigan is a four-piece rock band that gives its audiences a dynamic post-modern rock experience. The album Dracula(s) was recorded DIY style and stays true to their genre of pop punk rock.
The track titled “Waltz of the Chupacabra” is a great track to listen to; it starts off with an enticing guitar chord and the rest of the song is decorated with catchy and metaphorical lyrics. “Something dammed my stream of consciousness. I'm only getting a few drops out at a time,” the song is high energy and it all slowly builds up toward the end which seems to be the quite literal breakdown of all the energy built up in the song.
A song intriguingly named “Riding Dragons Through a F*cking Time Vortex” gives listeners another side to Madmartigan’s persona. This track is a bit more toned-down in style and sentiment; it’s a bit more emotional and carries a heavier vibe, some may call it emo. The lyrics, “I consume every backhanded compliment in the room... And you and I both know we'll be the first to sell out the moon,” illustrate that sentiment clearly.
The track “Working on My Vertical Leap” is also heavy in sentiment, it starts off with a slow winding guitar and then some shaky, deep lyrics start to draw a somewhat suicidal scene; “Where I stand: On a rickety bridge over top shark infested waters.” As the song moves along, it becomes somewhat transcendental and goes through a few metamorphoses making it an interesting listen.
This album is a successful release and each song has its own unique story to tell. Anyone interested in post-modern punk rock will enjoy Dracula(s).
