MAGGIE’S MARSHMALLOWS “MAGGIE’S MARSHMALLOWS”
This fall, The Maggie’s Marshmallows, a young garage-punk trio grown in the moldy basement of a forgotten substation in Prague, will release their eponymous debut album on Get Hip Recordings. Influenced by the fuzzed-out, underground sounds on the Back From The Grave compilations and shaped by surf tunes, ‘60s punk, and Mexican soap opera soundtracks, this female-fronted Czech three-piece packs a wallop! Garage, sure. Sixties sound? Definitely. But let’s make it dark and dirty!
Recorded in 2015 at Studio de la Trappe on the sunny seaside of South France, The Maggie’s Marshmallows features 12 tracks written throughout the band’s career. Featuring production by the legendary Jim Diamond (The White Stripes, Fleshtones, Dirtbombs, The Cynics), the album is a testament to the group’s evolving moods, tempered by an undercurrent of contemporary musical tastes; an LP filled to the brim with thick layers of reverb, primitive riffs, primordial rhythms—and guest organs by Jim Diamond himself! Dark and dirty, indeed.
