RIYL: Gram Parsons, Beachwood Sparks, Crosby Stills Nash & Young

Label: Spiritual Pajamas

Clay Finch and Sam Blasucci make up Mapache, two faithful Los Angeles torchbearers of the cosmic country sound.  It’s a rich tradition passed down from generation to generation.  From Gram Parsons and The Byrds all the way to Beachwood Sparks and Phosphorescent, the pedal steel still rings true on the west coast.  Mapache is armed with a hefty supply of Cali Americana, from breezy harmonies to fireside banjos and sun-kissed acoustic guitar layers.  Chris Gunst, frontman for Beachwood Sparks, is actually cousins with Finch and helped mature their sound, so if you dug any of the early 2000s Sparks stuff, Mapache will sound close to home.

Their self-titled debut comes out in early October and Spiritual Pajamas has 1000 copies on black vinyl.  Listen to first single Chico River below and grab yourself some vinyl after the ‘buy’ link for a cool $18.
