4-piece psychedelic pop rockers Mwahaha hail from Oakland, California. The band comprising Ross Peacock, brothers Nathan and Cyrus Tilton and James Murphy released their self-titled debut album yesterday (December 6th) on their own imprint Mwahaha Music.
Mwahaha, recorded and mixed by Eli Crews (Deerhoof, tUnE-YarDs), is heavy on vintage synths and drum machines. tUnE-YarDs’ Merrill Garbus teamed up with the foursome in ‘Love’, where she co-sings with Ross Peacock.
The last track on the album, ‘Bathynomus Gigantes’, is an epic 11 minute trippy number.
Check out below the array of distorted melodic layers on the first single ‘Rainbow Diamond’. You can listen to whole album and buy it digitally here. A double vinyl edition is expected soon.
