Make Do And Mend’s 2010 debut full-length End Measured Mile turned a lot of heads in both directions. While many (including this writer) praised it as a triumph from a young band realizing their potential, others mourned its existence, perceiving as a downgrade from their excellent Bodies of Water EP. Most of that guff was the result of a slightly more streamlined approach to modern post-hardcore. It’s a puzzling argument, because those seeds have always been there, even going back to We’re All Just Living; MDAM have quickly gotten comfortable in their own skin, and their sound more assured as a result. Their new album, Everything You Ever Loved, likely won’t satiate fans pining for Bodies of Water II, but it’s still a mostly solid effort--even if it’s not a huge step up from End Measured Mile.
