I am not sure what ended the marriage between former Mendoza Line members Timothy Bracy and Shannon McArdle, but the title of McArdle's first solo album tells me that it may have not be so amicable. The record is called 'Summer Of The Whore.'
It's a really great record, although almost brutal to listen to at times. It reminds me a lot of Beck's 'Sea Change'...you get that almost uncomfortable feeling sitting there, listening to how a love dissolved.
Here is one of the more upbeat tunes, still pretty acidic, and no words are minced.
