The Mojuba label celebrates its 2015 tenth anniversary with the magnificent self-titled debut album by analog rockers February & Mars. Hailing from the stunningly beautiful west of Ireland, the Galway group's sound is awash with its environment, ranging from the rolling limestone mountains to the wild Atlantic sea. Core members Carl Ramberg and Jack Considine use classic drum machines and vintage synthesizers to carve their music, which is inspired by Detroit, Eno, Guns n' Roses, and interplanetary love. However, it's their use of more conventional techniques -- vocals, guitars, piano, etc. -- that gives February & Mars their dreamy signature sound, a hybrid of electronic music, psychedelic rock, indie pop, and cosmic disco with an upbringing fostered by house and techno club nights. This unique album involves none other than John Daly as the co-producer, who also released the group's three-song debut EP on his Feel Music imprint (FEEL 009EP).
