Broadfield Marchers - When the Lifted Connive - 2006

Taking inspiration from the power pop bands of yesteryear, Broadfield Marchers create short, guitar-fueled nuggets in the style of Big Star and Guided by Voices. The Kentucky-based trio is comprised of drummer Justin Carter, singer/guitarist Dustin Zdobylak, and bassist/singer Mark Zdobylak. After forming in 2000 and honing a nostalgic, poppy approach to songwriting, the bandmates attracted attention from the independent label Secretly Canadian. A two-year partnership resulted, with the band releasing its debut effort, When the Lifted Connive, on Secretly Canadian's tab in 2006.-AMG
