The Mammoths: “To The Bone”

By: Jack Anderson

Hearkening back to their migratory namesake, The Mammoths have done most of their tusk-cutting on the road. This Austin quartet has been averaging at nearly two hundred shows each year since 2017, riding off a crowd-commanding palette of funk-metal, blues-rock, and sludgy, soulful psychedelia. Basically imagine the flair of current groups like The Black Keys or Arctic Monkeys but with all the caveats of classic rock.

The Mammoths have flaunted their woolly sounds onstage opening for the likes of Bright Light Social Hour and A Giant Dog, and they’ve most recently joined forces in-studio with producer-mixer Jeff Saenz, who’s already collaborated with Leon Bridges, Paul Cauthen, and Nikki Lane. The Mammoths’ inherently nomadic elements pop up again on their upcoming debut LP Loney Roller, a national tour awaits them next week, and today you can get down to the core of what makes this infectious four-piece great, “To The Bone”!
