The Mantles

I've been hearing about the Mantles for a while. They're part of that sunny, trippy SF garage scene that maybe started with John Dwyer and Kelley Stoltz and has now expanded to include Ty Segall, Sic Alps, Fresh & Onlys, Mikal Cronin and, I don't know, maybe a dozen others. Their latest album, Long Enough to Leave will come out July 18th on Slumberland, and it's got a very NZ-ish slack-tempo'd radiance ("Brown Ballon" especially, is super-Bats-ish, and they just played a show with the Bats, but you missed it, didn't you?). I'd also venture Woods, the Beets, Nodzzz (who should've been on that SF list above, oops) as relevant comparisons.

So, how about that "Brown Balloon"?
