Don Campau & MJB
Sinecure (Semper Fi Recordings)

By: Alex Steininger

"I like beer, more than I like you. I like music, more than I like you," proclaims Don Campau and Michael J. Bowman on the opening track ("Really Like") of their self-released full-length, Sinecure. And though the music is rough and still very much in the demo stages, Don Campau & MJB's dedication to indie music, and appreciation for the lo-fi home recordings and self-empowerment of musicians, is note worthy. Think slow, soft singer-songwriter pop with no inhibitions, nothing holding them back, just guitars, guys, and sparse instrumentation, recorded poorly (but with plenty of emotion and heart), and that is what you have here. I'll give it a C-, as I respect and appreciate them for what they're doing.
