For Your Listening Pleasure: Mikal Cronin ‘MKII’

We had the pleasure of checking out Mikal Cronin and his band at the 2013 FYF Fest this weekend. After getting funky to their enormous live set, we can’t stop listening to the latest record from Mikal Cronin, titled MCII, which has a great live vibe to it.  Songs like “Change” and “Weight” put us back on the festival grounds, center stage amid a sea of concertgoers, as the guitars bellow out massive, driving rock chords, the drums shake the ground beneath you, and the catchy 80s and 90s indie style pop melodies turn you into a backing vocalist for the day.
