TINY MAGNETIC PETS were founded in 2009 in Dublin by Paula Gilmer on vocals and Sean Quinn in charge of electronic sound wizardry.
They were joined by Eugene Somers to take care of the percussion side of things and blossomed into a serious act, recognised by the likes of OMD, Michael Rother and Rusty Egan. Returning with their second full length album 'Deluxe/Debris', Gilmer and co promise to deliver their best work to date, a "perfect soundtrack for complicated times". More Inside ›

Mark Jones announced this was to be the last free session to which Carol Decker amusingly quipped “Will I have to pay to talk about myself?” More Inside ›
