Episode Summary

Meet Marvin
Somewhere along the way, “instrumental” blurred into "arty"—a catchall tag for otherwise unclassifiable bands like Tortoise and Explosions in the Sky. To get a good sense of Marvin, try reorienting your thinking to the early 60s, when vocal-less outfits like the Ventures privileged high-energy fun over introverted experimentation. This Montpellier, France trio layers Emilie Rougier’s vintage Korg synth tones—and the occasional Vocoder episode—over guitarist Frédéric Conte and drummer Grégoire Bredel’s writhing riffs, yielding a noisy throb balanced precariously between New and No Wave.moreless
