The Mantles are not a rock band that you might have heard of—yet. They produce this new kind of alternative psych folk music that completely encompasses everything we have always wanted to hear in a band of that . .. genre? And now with their new release of All Odds End available to stream on Stereogum, we can get that much closer to listening to their new stuff.
Coming from the Bay area, the band has a number of tricks up its sleeve in terms of getting just the right sound to come out, and Michael Olivares sure delivers in terms of what we want to hear. Plus, they have the amazing Papercuts producer Jason Queyer standing right by their side to make sure that everything goes well—and boy does it. The whole band is full of songwriters and performers, and it sure is seen in their album, which you find here.
Also available to stream is Maya Postepski’s (Princess Century) Progress album, which will be released on October 12. After she released Lossy EP this year, she’s releasing Progress under the name of Princess Century. Because of the anticipation, this early release was meant to better get fans to know her music better. Listen to it here.
