Well, hello.

Welcome to the online home of AutomanicArts. Here, you’ll find music, the occasional video, assorted words, collected wisdom and a fair degree of whatnot.

On the music tip, AutomanicArts is the current home of Mammoth Gardens, the latest endeavor from Barry Walsh, co-founder of Halifax alt-pop band Cool Blue Halo (“Too Much Kathleen,” “Take It Back Now,” “Sweetie Said”), and most recently, front person for Toronto-based outfit Galore.

So to kick off the whole shebang, here are a couple of tracks from the upcoming Mammoth Gardens debut EP, New Moon Variety, due in the near future. More news and items of great interest and global magnitude to follow.
