Four Your Listening Pleasure

By Thomas DunlapMusic Journalist Over the course of the past few months I have come across several distinguished tracks that have managed to stick with me. I have been unable to stop listening to them, and in certain cases I have played them over and over on repeat.

Martian Subculture

By Thomas Dunlap Music Journalist Martian Subculture is the DIY project of Quin, Ireland’s own Evan O’Malley. Identified as “folk music from another planet,” the tunes of Martian Subculture are as familiar as they are foreign. Solidified by skeletal production and the heavy use of guitar pedals, the music is satisfying yet sinister. Taking the fundamentals of indie pop and adding an extraterrestrial touch of psychedelia, O’Malley has created what […]

Their sound, self-labeled as “Friday night bath music,” is an amenable amalgamation of laid back lounge-funk and relaxing indie-rock. In their […]
