"Broadfield Marchers - When the Lifted Connive"

By Mat Herron

Title:
When the Lifted Connive

Artist:
Broadfield Marchers

RecordLabel:
Secretly Canadian

Copyright:
2006

Review:
It takes about a nanosecond for you to realize brothers Mark and Dustin Zdobylak are catchy as head colds, with songs sweet enough to rot molars.

The brothers Zdobylak draw inspiration from the Beach Boys, Guided by Voices and the Bee Gees their first trip out. “Now the Truth” marinates in Beatle-esque revelry and urgent guitar progressions, while “Deliver the Fools” shimmers its way into Floyd-ian ambience.

Justin Carter’s opening drum fills to “Kingdom for Lions” are about as muscular as it gets, as the Marchers tread happily into mild and harmonious bliss. - Louisville Eccentric Observer (LEO)

Introducing the Broadfield Marchers




All of us at the Rockist Society hold a tremendous amount of pride in where we're from, so each time a band from our home state starts making even the most minor waves, we tend to take an inordinate amount of interest. While the other Rockists have a fair claim to their home state being the (indie) rock capital of the country (not to mention blues, jazz, polka...), I can't quite claim the same wealth of resources. But Kentucky -- where I was born and raised -- has its share of groundbreaking country artists, is the birthplace of bluegrass, and also still has its share of quality of rock bands: Slint, My Morning Jacket, the Apples in Stereo (sorta), to name a few. You can now add the Broadfield Marchers to the list. Like a lo-fi version of the Who -- in other words, Guided by Voices, but with better harmonies -- they've just put out a new album on Secretly Canadian, When the Lifted Connive, and picked up a nice little review in the latest issue of Magnet. There's not much out there to read on these guys, so you'd be best served to go check out the Keith Moon drum swells that introduce "Kingdom of Lions" and the wistful, nearly ethereal "Harriet Nice", which sounds like the early Byrds sans 12-string jangle.

Bio

The Broadfield Marchers are a power-trio from Louisville, KY, whose major influences include the Kinks, Beatles, Beach Boys, Big Star, Guided by Voices, and the Who. We are a young group of friends who have grown up together, listening to and appreciating the evolution of rock n’ roll music. For over five years, we have been writing and performing together, and want to share our sound with a larger audience.
