Make Do And Mend

Make Do And Mend are a post-hardcore/the wave band. The music could easily be called melodic hardcore but they have been lumped in with the other Wave bands like Touché Amoré, with whom they did a split, La Dispute and Pianos Become The Teeth.

This ep is completely different though. 6 songs, all acoustic, reworking of songs from End Measured Mile, a couple of new ones, and most exciting for me, a Touché Amoré cover. For some reason Make Do And Mend never really clicked with me. I liked it and there`s nothing wrong with it but nothing before this ever really grabbed my attention. The Touché Amoré cover is really good and the songs actually grab me when they`re in a more stripped down, acoustic form.
