Tagging Satellites One Night Falls

When the definitive book about the Seattle music scene is written, there's going to have to be a full chapter devoted to the work of ultra-prolific performer/composer/producer Graig Markel and his many musical endeavours. Tagging Satellites is just one of them, and with the band's third album, One Night Falls, remains one of his most innovative and inspired. The ten-track disc's fusion of jangly power pop and dark, ambient soundscapes sewn together by the angelic vocals of Zera Marvel recalls Hole, PJ Harvey and Radiohead, shaken, stirred and poured into Phil Spector's martini glass.
