"Mixtape 2003" by The Academic
We are a scholarly bunch here at WYMA. Our office is replete with books, magazines, newspapers and PR statements about bands and albums. Mort of our staff can, and sometimes actually does, read. So we feel that The Academic is a band that we should support, as we would any fellow scholars. Fortunately, the Mullingar, Ireland four-piece makes our support completely painless, as they make the kind of indie rock of which we are very fond. And that leads us to their latest fuzz bomb of reverb and energy, the single "Mixtape 2003". Stream it below.
The Academic are Craig Fitzgerald (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Matt Murtagh (lead guitar/backing vocals), Stephen Murtagh (bass/backing vocals), and Dean Gavin (drums/backing vocals).
