Eli Mardock is among my favorite Nebraska musicians. He is formerly of Eagle Seagull, a Lincoln, Neb., band that put out some great music before calling it quits. I’m really looking forward to Mardock’s full solo album that is supposed to be released next year.

“Cut Me Open” is a beautiful, pained song. The video is appropriately sad and cinematic.
