The fifth studio album from SoCal cosmic folk band Mapache, Swinging Stars, was recorded at the Panoramic House in Marin County, California -- an artist retreat that has recently hosted acts like My Morning Jacket, The War On Drugs and Cate Le Bon. “That environment yields itself to a higher level of focus because everybody’s together for a week,” says guitarist Clay Finch, explaining that the band stayed there during the process, sharing every bit of their time and energy on a shared vision. “We were all captive. No one could escape,” he laughs. There are also two special features including Allah-Lahs’ Spencer Dunham, who plays bass on “French Kiss,” and David Rawlings, who graciously took the call to play acoustic guitar on the album’s finale, “Where’d You Go,” recording his part remotely.

Limited to 300 copies the VMP exclusive version of Mapache's Swinging Stars is pressed on (AAA) Green, Brown & Gold Tri-color vinyl at GZ Vinyl. The 1LP will arrive in a single, direct-to-board, foil-stamped and numbered jacket. It was mastered by Dave Cooley at Elysian Masters.
