Self Made Man/Suck La Marde Self Made Man/Suck La Marde

These two bands come from the Montreal area and contribute five songs each to this split. Self Made Man are politically inspired introspective emo from the suburb of Ile Bizard. With a sound that shares common elements with the likes of the Promise Ring, they infuse their music with melancholic sensibilities that would suit your lonely moods. Suck La Marde are on the flip of the same coin, but rawer and with dual vocals and songs in French. Their tunes also have more bounce to them, with jagged guitars that aren't afraid to indulge in the rock. The two bands have enough in common to not sound weird beside each other while remaining unique, like the musical equivalent of fraternal twins. (Dare To Care)
