TK #87: Marah – If You Didn’t Laugh, You’d Cry (2005)

This is the most consistently engaging album by Philly’s rock and roll true believers for the obvious reason: It’s their best batch of songs. From the Stonesy crackle of “The Closer” to the elegant imagery of “Walt Whitman Bridge,” the band displays maturity and versatility without sacrificing their trademark calamity. And “The Demon of White Sadness” delivers precisely on its thorny title.
