The storyteller-style lyrics and acoustic pop/rock guitar of Mark Blom sound reminiscent of college radio favorites the Mountain Goats and Neutral Milk Hotel. Add the creative and tasteful percussion work of Tyler Dubla and you have something very original known as Markus J. Dandy and the Complete Lack Thereof. Though the band name runs long, their songs cover a lot of ground in short work. Blom spins tales by the mouthful while the music changes tempos from melodic finger picking to fast-paced, hand-clapping pop. A collection of fun, homemade videos can be found on YouTube.
