Thickets and Stitches, the debut album from Bay Area indie rock ensemble The Mumlers, is an amalgamation of wry, witty lyrics and traditional rock instrumentation tastefully embellished by more unusual elements including swelling brass, plaintive slide guitar, and just a touch of accordion. The band's refreshing blend of lighthearted stage presence and seriously well-crafted songs has won them fans all over the West Coast, including accolades from the press and inclusion in the prestigious Bleeding Edge and Noise Pop festivals. They have played shows with indie stalwarts such as Yo La Tengo, Clinic, Matmos, Money Mark, and labelmate Tommy Guerrero.  Thickets and Stitches is a portrait of a young band in love with music, exploring the various textures of the rock genre and creating something satisfyingly original. There are crowd-pleasing mid-tempo rockers ("Red River Hustle"), mesmerizing ballads ("The Hinge's Lament"), call-and-response soul stompers ("Shake That Medication") and songs that defy easy categorization.  In an effort to maintain warmth and spontaneity, the album was recorded live to two-inch tape with minimal overdubs. Though the writing and producing was handled within the group, they sought the singular talents of The Legendary Stardust Cowboy (bugle) and Sarah Jo Zaharako of Gojogo (violin) to flesh out their sound. The majority of tracks were recorded at Snowghost studios in rural Whitefish, Montana, by engineer Brett Allen. Additional material was recorded closer to home at various studios including with Tape Op magazine publisher John Baccigaluppi at the Hangar in Sacramento, CA. Some time later the tracks were mixed by Thom Monahan (past clients include Brightblack Morninglight, Devendra Banhart, and Vetiver) at the Hangar. Mastering was handled by J.J. Golden (Calexico, Rachel's, etc.) at Golden Mastering in Ventura, CA.
