Tonight in Music: Mammatus at the Funhouse

posted by on October 14 at 10:08 AM

Mammatus played Wall of Sound yesterday (Dave Segal posted about the show here), but if you missed that, catch ‘em tonight at the Funhouse with Wildildlife and Emeralds.

Mammatus - “Righteous Path” (live)
Mammatus, Wildildlife, Emeralds
(Wall of Sound) Another gaggle of grandiose longhairs from Holy Mountain Records’ stable of heavy psychedelia, Cali trio Mammatus forge an expansive, serpentine jammage that inspires as much headbanging as it does mind expansion. Their self-titled 2006 album best captures Mammatus’s mammoth, prog-metallic maneuvers, but 2007 sophomore LP The Coast Explodes boasts a better title and suitable-for-framing cover art. Mammatus create sprawling, spiritual songs to which you can still throw devil horns. Seattle’s Wildildlife have quaffed from the same bong-water-laced Kool-Aid bowl as Mammatus, so they should ably complement the trio on their quest for higher unconsciousness. DAVE SEGAL
