Maff: Maff

Maff cover art
Maff is the S/T debut album from the Santiago, Chile based band. Featuring 8 tracks that delightfully whisp you in a whirlwind through such genres as shoegaze, alternative rock, noise pop and indie verging on grunge, but with a dose of electronica thrown in the blend. It's no wonder how this has happened, considering the bands they cite as their main influences - The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Pixies, Ride, Sonic Youth, and My Bloody Valentine. Maff is clearly having a beautifully combined love affair with guitar pedals and synth, bringing the listener into a cosmic zone, with feelings ranging from revolution-bent to melancholic and even romantic at times. This album is a must have. Stream and buy Maff at the link below.
