Johnny Marr is best known as the guitarist and co-songwriter of the Smiths, crafting jangles that pair well with woe as you look forlornly out the rain-stained bus window. Besides soundtracking your angsty days, this British rocker was a temporary member of groups such as the Cribs, Electronic, Modest Mouse, The The, and the Pretenders. In addition, Marr has kept himself more than busy cowriting tracks and collaborating with film composer Hans Zimmer. Marr recently returned to his solo pursuits this past June to drop his third release, Call the Comet, which feels sharpened and polished in comparison to 2014’s Playland. “Hi Hello” highlights that Smiths-esque jangle, but as you dive further, Marr has fine-tuned his lyrical hooks and embraced more of a post-punk approach, à la “Actor Attractor” and “My Eternal.”
