American Mars–Western Sides–Gang Plank


American Mars
Western Sides
Gang Plank
ADDS 3/4/08

“A classic Americana feeling is enveloped in these pop trappings both in a true songwriting sense as well as a trough-beating on sampled textures and moody vibes. An indescribable magic.”
-Shannon McCarthy, /Real Detroit Weekly

“Hailing from Detroit, yet having not a trace of the Motor City rock element, the ethereal sound of American Mars is an impassioned and moody brand of indie-Americana. One might compare this to the mid-period work of Joe Henry. American Mars even find ultra-inspired moments where they kick it up a few notches for a moving and dynamic effect.”
-Miles of Music
