MAPLE MARS - GALAXYLAND


Release 2010 - Kook Kat Musik.

"A psychedelic masterpiece!" - Mike Lidskin (Twirl Radio)

Somewhere between the psychedelic pop of Brian Wilson’s SMiLE and the riotous drive of Big Star comes this band’s latest dozen-track collection, which keeps accessible while never letting down its artistic guard” - Robert Kinsler (Orange County Times)

Includes a cover of "New Day", written in 1971 by the legendary child prodigy Mark Radice (who plays piano, arranged the strings, and co-produced the track)!

MAPLE MARS - BEAUTIFUL MESS


Released 2007 - Kool Kat Musik. Their third release is a pure pop delight and sees the band stretching out a bit musically! Rick Hromadka explains - "'The new album picks up where 'Circular Haze', our second album, leaves off. Musically, it recalls the 'beautiful' blend of our psychedelic power pop and lush acoustic orchestrations. Features a beautiful cover of 10CC's "I'm Not In Love"!


Audities Top Ten pick for 2007!


Named 2nd best album of 2008 in Shindig Magazine!

MAPLE MARS - CIRCULAR HAZE


Released 2004. Kool Kat is proud to present the long-awaited followup to “Welcome To Maple Mars”! The LA times described their music as “a dash of Cheap Trick, a sprinkle of ELO, some Jellyfish on the side and a big dollop of The Beatles”! Their new CD, while still embracing these influences, is a giant musical leap forward as they continue to finely hone their craft of top-notch pop (power + otherwise)! GREAT!

MAPLE MARS - WELCOME TO MAPLE MARS

Released 2001 - Permanent Press Recordings. What started out as a Rick Hromadka solo album after his stint with Double Naught Spies because the first of many from Maple Mars!


Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Magazine "One of the best of it's genre.
