THE ROTTEN MANGOS

rotten mangos3The Rotten Mangos, a way cool band from Austin, Texas, released their self titled EP in November, 2014. Luckily I found it. The album is, well, Popedelic!

The opening track, ‘Tent Rentals‘ offers a dynamite vocal track with way cool effects, a great bass line, and a sweet melody. ‘Pacify Your Mind‘ has exceptional changes, and a wonderful riff, while ‘Krishna’s Theme‘ delivers a brilliant twang from a steel guitar, great rotten mangos4backing vocals, and a cool guitar solo. The insanely good percussion on ‘Jools Share‘ is complimented by cool harmonies, a great bridge, and some wonderful effects while ‘I Left My Room‘ gives up cool vocals and changes. My favorite track, ‘Moose Knuckles‘, is simply a fantastic pop song. With a great melody, this up tempo track offers some great changes, sweet backing vocals, and a dynamite riff. Add to this a wonderful tempo change, and some cool organ, and you have The Rotten Mangos!

 

 

The psychedelic pop sound of this EP is a wonderful treat. Sort of the `1960’s meets the 21st Century. The songs are wonderful, and the instrumentation is perfect. An excellent all day listening album. Have a listen for yourself here, and grab a copy. One of those name your price downloads. Enjoy the trip!
