CD Title: Mary's Dead

Reviewer: Donovan Tate

This is a 4 song ep by New York based The Mystic Underground, who I find one of a kind. As me being a electronic/gothic/darkwave artist, producer, music journalist, and dj, I find not too many good synth-pop bands I can indulge myself to listen to. The only bands I like are: Velvet Vimoz (also techno and trance), Neuroactive, Endora, Provision, The Echoing Green, Mesh, Spray, Xero-G, Joy Electric, Psyche, Little Tin Box, and Thou Shalt Not. The Mystic Underground is added to my liking list because I admire them for not trying to be the next DEPECHE MODE or copy their sound like majority electro acts do or should I say trying so. This band has gotten my attention ever since their 2001 single ep release "The Wanderers." "Mary's Dead" is their new 2003 drop to the public. It's danceable and definitely for the clubs and college radio. A remix "Mary's Dead (Dj remix us in mix)" that's 7 minutes long is also included. It have a dark twisted feel. My favorite line in the song is "And when the casket dor shuts tight/a dark cloud rains over this town." The song is about a woman whose love been taken for granted and ended up being murdered by her estrange boyfriend. Sounds like something I hear on the news just about every week. Two other tracks on disc, "Town" and "I Remember Everything" have a nice beautiful piano melody are good to get into. The lyrics are strong and emotional. The singer, Vlad, sounds like Andy Bell from Erasure. The Mystic Underground sound is purely 100% ORIGINAL.
