Today, Mapache — the duo of Sam Blasucci and Clay Finch who’ve been called “a blazed-up Everly Brothers” by Aquarium Drunkard for their cosmic west coast vibes and high lonesome harmonies — announce that on November 29th, Yep Roc Records will reissue their self-titled full-length debut. Produced by Dan Horne (Beachwood Sparks, Cass McCombs, Allah-Las), Mapache showcases a truly pan-Californian sound - Mexican street music, Bakersfield, psychedelia, Hawaiian music and more - and set the stage for the new music Mapache plans to release in 2020.
Watch the video for “Lonesome LA Cowboy,” which fuses Mapache’s harmonies for a new take on the New Riders Of The Purple Sage classic: https://youtu.be/Y_q-ZJV6kQQ
The Mapache reissue will include the tracks from Mapache’s Lonesome LA Cowboy EP, marking the first time that the Lonesome LA Cowboy tracks have been available in a physical format. The Lonesome LA Cowboy tracks will be available as bonus tracks on the Mapache CD and as a 45 single included inside the Mapache LP. Pre-order Mapache here:https://lnk.to/mapachemapache

Sam Blasucci and Clay Finch met in high school, where they bonded over their mutual love of skateboarding and classic songwriters. After graduation, Finch headed north to study music at Chico State, while Blasucci headed south to Mexico, where he lived for two years, immersing himself in the musical traditions of his surroundings.
Stationed now and forever in Los Angeles, Finch says that Mapache “make music that’s reflective of the landscape we grew up with in southern California. It’s a big sweep of all the really rich influences you encounter around here: folk and psychedelic and country and Latin and rock and cowboy and Hawaiian. We’re drawing from a really deep well.”
