Almost five years ago, The Mendoza Line released Thirty Year Low. It was really good and really sad and fractured, in keeping with its status as the group’s (and the group’s couple’s) break-up album. Not a linear telling, mind, but the last work they created together before it all became impossible.
And the promotional e-postcard Glurp created for it is still up at that link. And you should listen to it for its melancholy disappointment (“Since I Came”, “30 Year Low”) and its anger (“31 Candles”) and buy the album and its companion disc. And you should get excited that Shannon McArdle is putting out her second solo album this summer.
