A rough and tumble decade in the 00's forged The Mammals identity as "subversive acoustic traditionalists" or a "party band with a conscience." Re-emerging from a hibernation period during-which the band's founders explored new songwriting terrain, The Mammals dont suffer from multiple genre syndrome, they celebrate it as if gleefully aware that the sound barriers separating old-timey music, vintage pop and contemporary folk are as permeable as cotton. (Washington Post) Their new album, Sunshiner, was recorded at their own studio Humble Abode Music in West Hurley, NY with co-producer Adam Armstrong.
"Indeed, The Mammals are all heart, and Sunshiner seems to be packed with ideas about how love will yet win over darkness and fear. If theres a moral to this story, its nowhere better stated than in the final line of the final song on the disc. Singing in unison, with instrumentation so relaxed its like the worlds gentlest wake-up call, the line comes out of the fog: May we never say goodbye to all our big ideas. - Kim Ruehl, Folk Alley
