Mendoza Line is a band from Georgia fronted by singer-guitarists Timothy Bracy and Peter Hoffman that plays traditional roots-rock with poppy melodies. The 1996 recordings for their first album were released only seven years later as If They Knew This Was the End (Bar/None, 2003). The virulent folk-rock of Poems to a Pawnshop (Kindercore, 1997) morphed into the serene and clever ballads of the EP Like Someone in Love (Kindercore, 1998) and of the full-length I Like You When You're Not Around (Kindercore, 1999).

Relocating to New York, the group released the mediocre and unfocused We're All in This Alone (Bar/None, 2000). Their art became more radio-friendly with Lost in Revelry (Misra, 2002), the album that promoted Shannon McArdle to third songwriting pillar of the band, and the Thomas Pynchon-esque concept album Fortune (Bar/None, 2004).

Full Of Light And Full Of Fire (Misra, 2005), the first Mendoza Line album without Hoffman, coincided with the first album by Slow Dazle, The View From The Floor (Misra, 2005), the side project of Shannon McArdle and Timothy Bracy.

The Mendoza Line reached its creative peak with 30 Year Low (2007), a mature parade of realistic vignettes, musically invigorating at least in 31 Candles and I Lost My Taste. Tim Bracy and Shannon McArdle divorced after recording this album.

Final Reflections of the Legendary Malcontent (2007) is a collection of covers.

Shannon McArdle debuted solo with Summer of the Whore (2008).
