about

"Mako Sica is a Chicago band that features two former members of the underappreciated post-rock group Rope. However, post-rock doesn't really describe the sounds that Mako Sica make. Caucasian Desert Rock is the ridiculous sub-sub-genre that immediately came to mind the first time we saw them. Basically, Mako Sica sound like the more recent Dead Man Soundtrack-style Earth, if Earth were a Not Not Fun band. Live on Mayday at Strobe is Mako Sica's vinyl debut and it includes two sparse, but engaging, side-long tracks of trancelike psychedelia heavily influenced by the furthest out side of the Impulse Records catalog. At times, Mako Sica's sound is reminiscent of a Free Jazz-ier Group Doueh. As you can see, Mako Sica are a unique sounding group that are not easy to pigeonhole. Don't waste time trying to figure out where this is going to get filed in your collection as this release is limited to 120 hand-numbered, hand screen printed, hand stamped, hand assembled copies. Each copy includes a digital download of the entirety of the Strobe session recordings and a couple of super sweet inserts. We released it, so it's obviously comes with our highest recommendation. First come, first served." - Permanent Records, Nov '09
