MANTLES - mantles LP, Siltbreeze




“With two acclaimed seven inches under their belt, The Mantles answer the call for more with a stunning debut LP sure to please all who cross its path. The Mantles have been dead-on in distilling a contemporary pop/psych concoction that mixes equal parts early Chills with early Dream Syndicate – and really, who among us wouldn’t want a bottle of that with which to quietly tipple the day away? Recorded by Greg Ashley, the LP taps said hybrid, and if anything, burrows deeper into the core of rock, extracting essential magma that fuses early SF Ballroom psychedelia, Byrds-ian jangle-pop, and the Velvet Underground’s extraordinary ability for serpentine leads and bridges. And yep, that pretty much covers all the bases.”
