Mapache is the duo of Sam Blasucci and Clay Finch, who first met as students at La Cañada High School, just north of Los Angeles. The two stayed friends through their college years—Finch went to Chico State and Blasucci spent two years as a missionary in Mexico—and eventually they ended up back in L.A., spending their days playing guitar together once again, just like old times. Working with producer/engineer Dan Horne (Cass McCombs, Allah-Lahs), they recorded two albums of originals (2017’s Mapache and 2020’s From Liberty Street) as well an album of covers, 2021’s 3. Often trading solos, and occasionally switching from English to Spanish.

So when it came time to record their recently released, Roscoe’s Dream, they didn’t mess with the formula. The band booked some time at Horne’s Lone Palm Studio and called in a handful of friends to play additional parts, including Farmer Dave Scher of Beachwood Sparks on melodica and lap steel on a couple tracks. The finished product is an ode to the past as well as a bridge forward. Covers of songs like Bo Diddley’s “Diana” and Gabby Pahinui’s “Kaua‘i Beauty” act as nods to heroes of theirs while originals like “Man and Woman” and “Pearl to the Swine” take the template of golden-age rock and lovingly deconstruct it in a modernist lens.

Roscoe’s Dream is their most fully-realized release to date, a sprawling opus that captures the coastal bohemian charm of their distinct California sound in its purest form. Across eighteen indelible tracks, there are glimmers of Laurel Canyon psychedelia, an uplift of laid back, PCH-ready rockers, and droves of the spellbinding Spanish-acoustic-balladry that established the duo as a force in the first place.” Roberto Johnson
