ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Playing to audiences with technique and precision, a new style of accoustic prog indie folk punk rock is emerging. Mandrake is an intersting quartet made of a double bass, classical guitar, accoustic guitar, and percusion aka drums. Now mandrake begins its path of making a name for themselves on the thriving scene of great music in the San Francisco bay area. Thick harmonies and intense song writing makes these musicians come up with very delicate and emotional textures that create a full lenght piece. Meeting in Colorado as graduates in college, they began writing music in a classical rock quartet style. Mandrake decided to take it to the next rung of the ladder and in 2003 all moved to Oakland to take on the challange of finding a drummer, and creating a novel. Spending the last 4 years, the intense fusion of styles amoung the band has finally taken some shape.

Pamela at CD Baby


Acoustic guitars, both classical and steel-string, leap over long, bowed notes from a double bass, with the drums rattling and pounding below... brittle cymbals chatter under delicate guitar picking in this delectable Bay Area acoustic rock. The words “brittle” and “delicate” betray the overall feel of the record, though; there’s plenty on this record that keeps the music moving and the melodies flowing. There’s a spirited (even if a bit cynical) attitude here that leans more toward the rock than the folk, and catapults the songs past a floundering exploration of feelings and into an outright declaration of broken heartedness (In love? In life? In general?). Taken on a whole, Mandrake’s record reeks of solid musicianship, social discord, and gorgeous production that allows whatever notes may come to sail freely over your ears. Be bathed in its subtle beauty.
