Mammal Dap w/s/g Haley Moley
December 9 @ 9:00 pm$7
Northampton, MA-based electronic act, MAMMAL DAP is comprised of Killian Karlsson (guitar), Zack Cross (synths), Reed Sutherland (bass, synth bass), and Colin Jalbert (drums, samples). Together they deftly weave hypnotic beats with pumping bass, lush pads and soaring hooks. Balancing a deep love of nostalgic tones with a digital-age sensibility, their sound evokes the aesthetics of Tycho, Flying Lotus, and Bonobo. Their energized live performances and rigorous touring have led them to share the stage with acclaimed acts including The Motet, The Nth Power, Moon Hooch, Tauk, and Marco Benevento. The Deli Magazine calls it “a compelling combination of Ratatat’s elasticity and Flying Lotus’s claustrophobia.” Mammal Dap paints a cosmic soundscape in their newest EP Deep Field, “making melodies so catchy and singular that they feel slightly familiar” (Take Magazine).
In early 2015, house music dj and dance music producer Jennifer Maher Coleman (DJ Jennifer Haley) and indie rocker Paul Coleman (Mount Mole, Sinkcharmer, Beaked Whale, The Operators) combined their aliases and their musical sensibilities to form Haley Moley. Moody synth and guitar rock over electronic beats ultimately blossomed into a full-on five-piece with the welcome addition of Andrea Kosek (aka DJ Goldeedust, keyboards) Pat Thorpe (of DJ duo Partyhorn, bass guitar) and Mike Broomhead (also of Partyhorn, drums.) With a high concentration of electronic, funk, and disco dj’s on board as well as decades of rock experience steeped in atmospheric, dirty guitars, Haley Moley delivers a complex amalgam echoing these disparate roots and emerges refreshingly uncategorizable.
