Mariana Rivals' Wasting / Your Madness pairs post-rock guitar arrangements with a rich melodic perspective on the late quarter-life. These songs are written, performed and produced entirely by Chris Spada and Brett Middleton, in their respective homes in Connecticut and California. As such, the music has an undeniably American quality to it, evoking both open expanses and the escapism born out of life in suburbia.
