For a love of all things broken and noisy, Evan Martin, former FOAM founder and drummer, fronts the noise swirling, constant feedback screeching, and noise gazer-esque punk rock band “Looping”. Currently residing in London Ontario Canada and with a new roster of musicians now in the band (Laurie McColeman, Anthony Di Fazio) they look forward to making new music and touring whenever possible.
This duo kicks out high-energy garage rock with catchy riffs, distorted textures and shared yelling vocals, punctuated by dizzying percussive work. The band tours and performs relentlessly, supporting 5 releases in the last year alone.

Here at Meadowlands, we aim to inspire with our unique blend of guitars, bass, drums, and vocals. We know our fans won't settle for the same tired sounds, so we make sure that every song is jam packed with dreamy vocals, killer hooks, and the Ebmaj7add9 chord. You'll hear the love and attention that goes into each and every track. That's the Meadowlands difference!

OM Street
Through his experiences, OMST has established a hybrid sound that combines reggae, dance-hall, funk, blues, jazz, and folk, which directly corresponds with his relationship with music.

The love energy that drives life forward is at the heart of his explorations, which are necessarily informed by the natural world.
