Jackal Trades

This new Jackal Trades is slightly more downbeat than some previous releases, with a lounge muzak piano backing Mark McGee’s raps and rhyming… It is a minimalist backdrop but suits the subject matter this time around.

He is the “last man standing on the edge of the world” in this looking-inwards track, which explores inner mental turmoil and isolation.

Another addition to the substantial body of work that the ever-productive MM is accumulating under his various monikers, this is reflective and worth a listen as we buckle down to a winter of… nothing very much!
