New Album Roscoe’s Dream released 10th June 2022 via Innovative Leisure / Calico Discos
"Easy like Sunday Morning… Roscoe's Dream drips with escapist charm." — Mojo Magazine ★★★★
Today, the California-based folk-rock duo Mapache — comprised of longtime best friends Sam Blasucci and Clay Finch — share their latest preview of forthcoming record Roscoe’s Dream (out June 10th on Innovative Leisure/Calico Discos), “Light My Fire,” a cosmic cluster of unsuspecting, delicate sounds that feel like a smoldering daydream, a slow morning, or the sweet beginnings of a forever love. Atop the warm bounce of a perfectly saturated guitar, “Light My Fire” shines with bright strums of a campfire steel string, the rapid picking of an old world balalaika, and effortless harmonies. As the track gently transports its listeners to sun-soaked days flushed with summer love, “Light My Fire” reminds us that all we have for certain is the present moment. Watch the music video for “Light My Fire” here. Having honed their distinct folk-western musicality on 2020’s From Liberty Street — which UNCUT deemed “quintessentially laid-back” and NPR Music praised for having “a groove so strong you can basically hear the sunshine” — Roscoe’s Dream proves that Blasucci and Finch’s chemistry, cultivated since they were young schoolmates, is alchemic. Their refined yet casual virtuosity shines in an all-new, full band setup — making Roscoe’s Dream the most definitively Mapache album yet. “Roscoe's Dream drips with escapist charm,” says Mojo in an all new four star review, while Shindig praises the duo as "wayfaring strangers with a penchant for evoking beloved sounds and moods of the past, Mapache have matured into an entity with its own accomplished sound." Recent single “Tend Your Garden” is a whispered ode to longing and the painfully slow process of falling in love, listen here. Roscoe’s Dream follow’s last year’s 3, a lovingly crafted collection of covers that includes adventurous recreations of classics by Stevie Wonder and Sade.
