Today we review The Mantles’ second full length LP, Long Enough to Leave, which came out on Slumberland Records on June 19th. With this record, the sweet, yet gritty, indie-pop group out of San Francisco delivers a concise conglomeration of jangle-pop, psych, and melodic indie in a laidback fashion perfectly suited for the summertime.
