Melbourne-based artist Market releases their debut self-titled EP, a lo-fi collection of bedroom pop songs featuring collaborations with Tanaya Harper and Lauren Abineri.
Market is the project of Lee Hannah, an artist with a rich and full history releasing dulcet ambient pop as The Townhouses, acting as a session musician for Wafia, playing as one half of house-tinged duo Take Your Time and releasing a short film in 2018 set in the Australian Mallee. The project showcases a love for summer-tinged cassette pop production, and is sure to appeal to fans of Men I Trust or Washed Out.
Self-produced and mixed mostly in the Adelaide Hills over a few days last summer, the EP is made up of autotuned guitars, cheap drum machines and uncomplicated bedroom pop songwriting.
Market’s self-titled debut EP will be out digitally and on limited cassette on June 27th via Healthy Tapes.
This album blew up in 2020, and I was a little late to it, but I've been incredibly impressed by its staying power. A wonderful example of a record becoming a sensation that also holds up as a wonderful artistic statement. Bridgers just impresses more and more. Bryce Cannatelli
