More To Explore: Shane Hurley, Fun Guns

Shane Hurley
For those who like: James Vincent McMorrow, Elliott Smith

Shane Hurley is a young Irish folk musician on the verge of releasing his debut EP.  The record, It's...Depresso The Anxiety Clown (a loving tribute to my sad, sad life) is a collection of, surprise, gloomy folk tunes.

What sets Hurley apart is his self-awareness.  You can tell just from the title, which pokes fun at the melancholy nature of the tunes.

Fun Guns
For those who like: Beat Happening

LA's Fun Guns are a duo that truly embrace the lo-fi DIY spirit of the late '80s/early '90s underground.

Have a listen to Lemon Demos, which came out last summer:
