Artist: MANTLES
Title: Pink Information
Format: LP
Label: Mexican Summer
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Incredible jangle-pop that conducts a druggy seance for the spirit of Gene Clark. A collectors dream, these San Francisco visionaries have released an incredible series of singles on Duc-I-Tone, Slumberland, and Slitbreeze. Shades of LA 66, New Zealand 82 and London 86 dance around each other in a delirious, druggy waking dream. Truly beautiful stuff." - Mexican Summer.

Artist: MANTLES
Title: Dont Lie (aka Trust)/Secret Heart
Format: 7"
Label: Mt. St. Mtn.
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"With the deceptively determined surge of a sleepy glacier, The Mantles have been quietly and slowly perfecting their trademarked dark n dirge pop sound over the past few years. Starting as a trio, the band recorded their Dulc-i-Tone single with the mysterious & unreliable Cram-Ro production team. The band then dug themselves out of the Cram-Ro shit-morass for a batch of sunnier sounds courtesy Papercuts Jason Quever, two songs of which make up their forthcoming Mt. St. Mtn single. Soon after this session, the band lost a bass player but simultaneously absorbed both halves of the Cram-Ro team (including the half that sometimes gets Personal wink-wink), and its this current four-piece incarnation that recorded the upcoming Siltbreeze full-length album with Gris Gris Greg Ashley. Reviewers & showgoers alike regularly struggle without success to pin down the Mantles sound, though the Paisley Underground scene somehow seems to come up a lot, and though reviewers have an affinity for the words New and Zealand when describing the Mantles, band members insist that Mantles songwriting mainman and Graeme Downes-lookalike Michael O. has no idea what Flying Nun is other than a goofy TV show, nor is he familiar with that Slitbree label people keep talking about." - Mt. St. Mtn.
SOLD OUT

Artist: MANTLES
Title: Raspberry Thighs
Format: 7"
Label: SDZ
Country: France
Price: $9.00
"Dark, poetic beauty mixing cheerful Northern Californian brightness with the intensity and energy of The Feelies, The Clean or Dream Syndicate. Frayed and frazzled pop, moody psych/folk, sinister and buzzy guitar squalls sweet enough to bite." -SDZ.

Artist: MANTLES
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"With two acclaimed seven-inches under their belt, THE MANTLES answer the call for more with a stunning debut LP sure to please all who cross its path. The Mantles have been dead-on in distilling a contemporary pop / psych concoction that mixes equal parts early Chills with early Dream Syndicate-and really, who among us wouldnt want a bottle of that with which to quietly tipple the day away? Recorded by GREG ASHLEY, the LP taps said hybrid, and if anything, burrows deeper into the core of rock, extracting essential magma that fuses early SF Ballroom psychedelia, Byrds-ian jangle-pop, and the Velvet Undergrounds extraordinary ability for serpentine leads and bridges. And yep, that pretty much covers all the bases. The band is currently on their first US tour supporting Ty Segall coast to coast. LP includes free digital download." -Siltbreeze
