RIYL: Gram Parsons, Beachwood Sparks, Crosby Stills Nash & Young
Label: Spiritual Pajamas
Clay Finch and Sam BlasucciÂ make up Mapache, two faithful Los Angeles torchbearers of the cosmic country sound. Â It’s a rich tradition passed down from generation to generation. Â From Gram Parsons and The Byrds all the way to Beachwood Sparks and Phosphorescent, the pedal steelÂ still rings true on the west coast. Â Mapache is armed with a hefty supply of Cali Americana, from breezy harmonies toÂ fireside banjosÂ and sun-kisses acoustic guitar layers. Â 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 andÂ Spiritual Pajamas has 1000 copies on black vinyl. Â Listen to first single Chico River below andÂ grab yourself some vinyl after the ‘buy’ link for a cool $18.
Spiritual Pajamas is honored to present the debut album from Mapache. The album will be available on vinyl in a pressing of 1000 copies, on CD in a pressing of 500 copies, and digitally.
