Support Us


Balloon Machine is a music blog dedicated to supporting Alternative & DIY Music. The site was founded by me, Paddy Kinsella. After writing for various places over the years (GoldFlakePaint, Line of Best Fit, Clash etc), I decided to create my own platform to support artists making alternative & DIY music.

Two writers, Anjali DasSarma and Sage Shemroske, have recently joined me on this journey. While the site is entirely run for free and premised on our passion for music, there are unavoidable costs involved with hosting the site.

Any donation, no matter how small, will help us pay these costs and continue to bring you the best new music.

Thanks for being here.
