At first listen, this might sound like a mix tape put together by a madman, but by the second or third go, you’re right there in Mulcahy’s world.  You might not want to leave.

Mulcahy’s least predictable album: there’s something memorable and unexpected lurking around every corner.

Mulcahy manages to capture each subtle, melancholy-tinged nuance of love, loss and the unceasing march of time. The Possum in the Driveway is as brilliant as it is profound, cut through with sadness and longing, life and love, and some of the best songwriting to have been released this year.

Consequence of Sound
A bold new type of album that allows one of the great, underrated singers of his generation to showcase the depth of his talents like never before.
No Ripcord
An album that bravely looks ahead. It’s a fond return riddled with unbounded creativity, and could very well be his definitive statement.
A wonderful change of direction after 2013's gem of a record, 'Dear Mark J. Mulcahy, I Love You'. This record really highlights Mark's exquisite vocal range!
