California psychedelic folk duo Mapache impressed with their self-titled debut album, which quickly became a sought-after release. The duo of Sam Biasucci and Clay Finch signed with Yep Roc, who late last year reissued an expanded version of their debut. Mapache are now preparing to release their follow-up, From Liberty Street, which is due in March. “Light On Fire” is the first single, and it’s a good’n. While the promotional material hint at tropical and Latin grooves, this first taste is pure LA folk-rock, but we can definitely see their point; the percussion is all bongos and good vibes. “Life On Fire” definitely puts us in a mellow place, and we’ll always welcome that.
