about

“This record is about as close to the sound of home as you can get,” says Mapache’s Sam Blasucci. “We recorded it with a bunch of our friends in the house where we were living in a neighborhood that we loved. It’s a family vibe through and through.”

It made perfect sense, then, for Mapache to name their new album in honor the place at the heart of it all: Liberty Street. Produced by longtime collaborator Dan Horne (Cass McCombs, Allah-Lahs), From Liberty Street captures Mapache at their finest, weaving airtight harmonies around stripped-down, organic arrangements that blur the lines between past and present, between retro and modern, between traditional folk and cosmic country. The songs here draw on everything from Mexican boleros and Hawaiian-steeped surf to Bakersfield twang and lonesome cowboy campfire tunes, and Blasucci and his musical partner, Clay Finch, deliver them with the kind of easygoing charm and natural intuition usually reserved for blood brothers or married couples. It’s an instantly engaging chemistry they share, a captivating musical bond that mirrors the comfort, closeness, and camaraderie of the album’s homespun roots.

Mapache consists of Clay Finch and Sam Blasucci. Born and raised in Glendale, California, the duo's breathtaking harmonies and heartfelt sound verges on cosmic West Coast Pop Americana.

Track Name: Life On Fire
I want you to know
You set my life on fire
Your brain shines gold
You said “I like your style”

Ooo baby
Now you’re making me a liar
Ooo baby

At times I’ve cried
I’ve filled a jar or two
Now I drink that jar
Whenever I feel blue

Ooo baby
How many days have flown by?
Ooo baby

Ooo baby
Take it as it rolls by
Ooo baby
Track Name: Read Between the Lines
Read ‘tween the lines, baby
Live all your life
Do you ever feel like it could be real?
Read ‘tween the lines, baby
And live all your life
Somedays you’ll find
That it all just hurts inside

When the morning comes, it will be alright
Read ‘tween the lines, baby
And live all your life

We don’t know where the time usually goes
I don’t know where time will take us in the end

We don’t know where the time usually goes
I don’t know where I’ll be when all my time runs dry

Read ‘tween the lines, baby
Live all your life
Don’t you ever feel like it could be real?
Read ‘tween the lines, baby
And live all your life
Read ‘tween the lines, baby
And live
Track Name: Me Voy Pa’l Pueblo
Me voy pa’l pueblo
Hoy es mi día
Voy a alegrar toda el alma mía
Me voy pa’l pueblo
Hoy es mi día
Voy a alegrar toda el alma mía

Tanto como yo trabajo
Y nunca puedo irme al basilón
No sé que pasa con esta guajira
Que no le gusta el huateque y el ron
Ahora mismo la voy a dejar
En su bohío asando maíz
Me voy pa’l pueblo a tomarme un galón
Y cuando vuelva se acabo el carbón

Me voy pa’l pueblo
Hoy es mi día
Voy a alegrar toda el alma mía
Me voy pa’l pueblo
Hoy es mi día
Voy a alegrar toda el alma mía

Desdel día que nos casamos
Hasta la fecha trabajando estoy
Quiero que sepas que no estoy dispuesto
A enterrar mi vida en un rincón
Que lindo el campo muy bien ya lo sé
Pero pa’l pueblo voy echando un pie
Si tú no vienes mejor es así
Pues yo no sé lo que será de mí

Me voy pa’l pueblo
Hoy es mi día
Voy a alegrar toda el alma mía
Me voy pa’l pueblo
Hoy es mi día
Voy a alegrar toda el alma mía

La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
Track Name: Cactus Flower
I ain’t got no plans tonight
But hang around you and your dog
And look up at the stars on the roof at night
Lawless like a cactus flower

Fall is creepin’ through the trees
It keeps me from losin’ my mind
Makes me peek through the shades at night
Lookin’ out for cactus flower

Brake lights
I stop just to think the cactus flower loves me

All this time
There’s a hole in my head where she never was

I ain’t got much to spend
But I’ll pull it all out for you
And buy us two tickets on the next plane out
Lawless like a cactus flower
Track Name: See Through
Someday I’ll stop all my tryin’
And be just like I am, yeah
One of these days I’ll come runnin’ to you
And pick you off the ground, yeah

‘Cuz it’s see through, baby
See through take it or leave it

Someone might say that you’re hiding
They just might be right now
‘Cuz I know I can’t hide that I’m drownin’ inside
Splintered up inside, yeah

‘Cuz it’s see through, baby
See through take it or leave it
Yeah
Track Name: Face Is Blue
Everyone’s face is blue
I ain’t really sure what to do
I don’t wanna be that way
No I don’t wanna be that way

Gotta keep up that’s what they say
But have you heard the news today?
And everyone’s gone a bit insane
And I don’t wanna be that way
No I don’t wanna be that way

Oooooooo ooooooooooooooo
Ooooooo ooooooo yeeheew

I can’t escape my shadow
I feel it everywhere I go
And I don’t wanna lose my mind
No I don’t wanna lose my mind

I just wanna be kind
Lookin’ for a girl thats hard to find
But I don’t wanna be that way
No I don’t wanna be that way

Oooooooo ooooooooooooooo
Ooooooo ooooooo yeeheew
Track Name: Cowboy
I sleep underneath the starlight
‘Cuz I’m a cowboy
I wear my hat when I am sleepin’
‘Cuz I’m a cowboy

Somewhere along the line I wish I’d lose my mind
So I’d be crazy about you all the time

I’m smokin’ all these cigarettes
‘Cuz I’m a cowboy
And in Santa Catalina I’ll be sleepin’ yeah
‘Cuz I’m a cowboy

Somewhere along the line I wish I’d lose my mind
So I’d be crazy about you all the time

I press my pants and drive all night
Just like a cowboy
And I sleep under the open sky
‘Cuz I’m a cowboy
Track Name: Me Da Muerte
Me da muerte
Tu sonrisa
Me da muerte
Cada vez que
Tú pasas
Me da muerte
Pierdo mi vida
Me da muerte
Mejor te vas para siempre, vas

Y los días no me esperan
Se van al despertar
Ya se van al despertar

Me da muerte
Tu mirada
Me da muerte
Tu parecer de revuelta
Me lastima
Tu risa chiquita
Esta flama
Me va a quemar por dentro

No me importa si estés en la onda
O prefieres soledad
Tan solo, tú
Me encantas solo, tú
Track Name: Coyote
Home in the sage
Under the moon
Song in the wind
Pelican Queen

Coyote

Morning will come
Fog will go slow
She’s at the sea
Pelican Queen

Coyote

Cry in the night
Sweet lonesome cry
Dare do I sing to you redwood tree?

Coyote
Track Name: Cherry Barb
I fell in love with a cherry barb
Not too long ago
But what is love that don’t feel right
Deep down in your soul
I’m down all day and up all night
Reaching for the air
I dive right in and she swims away
Seems like she don’t care

There she goes a-callin’ me
Grabs me by the hair
In and out like a rainbow trout
This is just not fair
I’m swimming back to where I was
When my life was free
But I would have her any old day
Swimmin’ back to me
Track Name: Igual
Igual que tú
Todas las flores parecen
Igual que tú
Igual que tú

Día viene y se va
Al fin de todo se mueren las flores

Todas las flores parecen
Igual que tú
Igual que tú

Día viene y se va
Día viene y se va
Track Name: To Play for All of You
To play for all of you
It’s a dream come true
No matter where we are
Travelin’ near and far
All the love on the road and the places we go

Throw my voice into the canyon
Hope I touch someone inside
I could never have imagined
Better light down on these purple mountains that I see

To play for all of you
It’s a dream come true
No matter where we are
Travelin’ near and far
All the love on the road and the places we go

Drive all night to see the country
Light a smoke to make it home
Home ain’t always where your heart is
Home is where your soul is, home is where you’ll always go

To play for all of you
It’s a dream come true
No matter where we are
Travelin’ near and far
All the love on the road and the places we go
Track Name: I Just Steal Away and Pray
I just steal away somewhere and pray
Every time I do a deed I shouldn’t do
Every time I say a word I shouldn’t say
Well I’ll tell you what I do
And it brings a blessing too
I just steal away somewhere and pray

I just steal away and pray
I just steal away and pray
And I ask my blessed lord to lead the way
I just steal away and pray
I just steal away and pray
I just steal away somewhere and pray

I know God will hear and answer all my prayers
If I thank him for my blessings every day
When I’m burdened down with grief
He will give my heart relief
When I steal away somewhere and pray

I just steal away and pray
I just steal away and pray
And I ask my blessed lord to lead the way
I just steal away and pray
I just steal away and pray
I just steal away somewhere and pray
I just steal away somewhere and pray
