The Mantles rose from the Bay Area’s garagey folk-rock scene citing Nuggets and The Velvet Underground as their influences. Their sound has progressed from being fairly loose and noisy to ploughing a more mellow, melodic furrow. All Odds End is a beautifully made guitar pop album that recalls Paisely Underground bands such as The Rain Parade and the legendary Dunedin Sound of 80’s New Zealand.
Cheerful psych dreamers the Mantles return with a new 7" that displays their talents both in and outside of their favourite genre. "Memory" is something of a raw take for the band, buoying a certain post-punk influence that sounds hard-won and jangly. It's complemented by the trusty b-side "Undelivered".
