The Extraterrestrial Sounds of Mars Water

 Mars Water sound like their name. The music carries elements of surf rock, complete with catchy guitar hooks and driving drum beats, yet at the same time possesses some alien quality in its’ delivery. Somewhere within the reverb-heavy vocals, phased-out guitar lines and steady drum rhythms you can hear the transmission of something unearthly. Their latest release, “Tempus Flight” is a collection of sun-drenched recordings that seem to hover above you as you listen to them, making for a unique release that sounds better each time you listen to it. Their next show’s on Tuesday, September 4th at Valentines. Check it out. –Benjamin Toledo
