Got a nice email today, "your entire sparkling waters album is so good guys i hope you're not dead" Guess we gotta get out there and show we're still alive. We've just been living, biking, working, biking, working, jamming....... for a while. Got some new jams coming to fruition. Spacin on the CREME. Gotta show with OWL coming up, been trying to set something with them since they were teenagers. TERRY GROSS is gonna play too, featuring our favorite tape wrangler PHIL MANLEY. So if you're going to be in OAKLAND on June 29th you should come out, might be a while before you have a chance to see us again. We're not dead! We're living all over you.
We're happy to roll the amps out in FELTON! Aaron and Nicky grew up right down the street from the Felton Community Center, before it even existed. We've never played in Felton so it feels good to come home at last.
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.
