The Mantles Pink Information EP on 12" Vinyl + Download
The slow rumble of mid-tide surf and the legacy of bands who live near the water informs the shambling, catchy jangle of San Francisco's The Mantles. Their 2010 five-song EP Pink Information represents the band's most conventionally "pop" record to date, rumbling in the breakers with a Paisley Underground influence coming to the fore. In between bong hits number three and four, slap this record on and melt into your couch/beanbag/yoga mat/beach towel to the bittersweet tones of "Lily Never Married" and "Waiting Out the Storm." The cooler heads, they have prevailed.
