After an immensely successful start to their year, Máscaras are gearing up for the release of their debut record, Máscara vs. Máscara.

If you’ve ever seen the self-proclaimed “maximalist indigenous psych” trio live, then you’re probably already well aware of the energy that comes along with the performance. It’s bursting at the seams with a sort of infectious buoyancy, bouncing and bobbing along. And while getting that vibe to translate into the studio can be a challenge for most, Máscaras somehow manage it. Perhaps it’s the organic nature of their compositions… perhaps it’s the friendships the group was founded on… whatever it is, we’re excited that they’re doing it.

Recently named a 2015 Best New Band finalist by Willamette Week, Máscaras will be playing this Saturday, June 13th at Bunk Bar along with Bearcubbin’. You’ll be able to snag CDs and tapes of Máscara vs. Máscara made available by Party Damage and Resurrection Records respectively.

In anticipation of Máscaras upcoming release, It’s our sincere pleasure to premiere one of their brand new tracks, “Animal Prince”.
