Post Wizard New Mage Far Out Casual

New Cassette by Mammatus drum guy 

Mammatus drummer Aaron Emmert returns as WAPITI to unleash some synthesized jams.  If you liked the ambient nu age passages and flourishes of Sparkling Waters you might get into this. 

"Recorded during foggy late nights in Aptos, conjuring synths to echo my feelings, joyous, laughing waterfalls after the rains of El Nino, the pounding surf touching the walls of the canyon, creatures scurrying in the night, waking up with bells ringing in my brain beside the bubbling brook, sleepless synthesizers synthesizing while I sleepily stare and listen, driving through the deep dark woods at night speakers blaring up a swirling cosmos while bobcat dives out of the way. This is another cassette by another guy who listens to Kitaro and can't help but twiddle some knobs. If you're reading this, thank you, I love you." -AE



The last time we played in Austin, Texas was in 2007 with Acid Mother's Temple.  Now we're playing nine years later with Acid Witch.  Seems we can't escape the Acid.  Thanks to the good fellows at Psycho Entertainment we'll be playing August 20th at the PSYCHO ROAD SHOW with a bunch of heavy bands.  Don't miss out, we may not return to Texas for another nine years!  Tickets available here.

New tape from Mammatus guitarist

New Album "Sparkling Waters" out November 20th 

Spiritual016 :: Mammatus :: Sparkling Waters

Spiritual Pajamas is thrilled to announce the release on the new Mammatus LP, "Sparkling Waters"

Pre-order the LP or digital download at:
Heavy space rock outsiders Mammatus return with their fourth album, and their most ambitious to date.  Sparkling Waters is a double LP featuring four multi-movement pieces, each designed to recalibrate the shanga array in your mind.  In order to achieve the highest levels of sensatory clarity, the group enlisted Phil Manley (Trans Am, Life Coach) as their guiding light throughout the studio production.  As a result these tracks shimmer with a far out, casual glow, like an aural reflection of a Risan steam pool. 
On Sparkling Waters, Mammatus expand upon the astral grooves and heady riffs of their previous compositions and set a course for the furthest horizon.  Celestial arpeggiations of electric guitar ricochet infinitely across vast expanses of cosmic debris.  Heavy riffs thunder with a rhythmic groove, like the exploding coast of Ornia spoken of in days past.  Pastoral passages of mellow, slow burning psychedelia give way to Native American flute melodies and the chanting of spiritual incantations filtered through canyons of delay.  Heavenly dual guitar leads soar like a hawk gliding over a mountainside redwood canopy.  Radiant synthesizers harmonize to create a shape shifting formation of ambient space that envelops the rock and in some places completely takes over. 
Sparkling Waters is bound to appeal to a wide range of discerning listeners, as it incorporates elements of heavy riff rock, prog, and breath metal while it also features the enhancing sonic textures of kosmische sound coloration, soaring synth leads, and astral voyages through deep space.  This amalgamation of tones is presented in a way that is wholly original, casting Mammatus as the solitary practitioners of a unique sound that was invented with the express purpose of making you feel.....shanga.  So breathe deeply, strap on those headphones, drop the needle, and get far out.

The double gatefold LP will be released on November 20th, 2015
