N. Martin has come through with his promise to release loads of music. This album (his first) is loosely based around his love/hate relationship with free to air television programming, it is an emotional roller-coaster of Folktronica, Slacker Pop, Lo-Fi slop and other non existent genres. The songs have been influenced by much canned laughter and product placement but the album itself has been specifically crafted to be listened to on big warm fuzzy headphones in-between ad breaks of That 70's Show. Best enjoyed with a hot chocolate and a pack of your dads smokes.
released July 18, 2012
All songs on Square Eyes were written, performed and recorded by Nathan James Martin over the course of a year or so in his garage in-between episodes of Simpsons/Futurama (except track 10 which was recorded in DKS's living room on his family piano). All parts played by N. except the girl vox on a few tracks, that was his horrible Ex GF... lolz.
