White Manna

Valley King Records next release – White Manna ‘Come Down Safari’ LP – is now available for pre-order! This, like the Anywhere ‘Olompali’ 12” release in 2013, is also a picture disc with artwork by Alan Forbes. For fans of Carlton Melton, Moon Duo, Wooden Shjips.

“Californians, White Manna. Much of the edge of their set – which takes places amidst a backdrop of retina-burning ink projections of purples, blues and whites – comes from vocalist and guitarist David Johnson. He uses each loop of their psychedelic reel to whip himself up into a frothing at the mouth frenzy, to the point where his repeated mantras become unhinged howls, raging against the bone-hard space rock of his four band mates. In a recent interview, Johnson revealed he didn’t pick up a guitar until his late 20’s, which partly explains the primal nature of White Manna’s wonderfully swampy sound: on the one hand they’re heading towards the cosmos, but on the other they possess the raw punk nous of seminal garage bands like The MC5 and The Stooges.” – NME

For a limited time, we are offering $5.00 off all pre-orders. In addition, all orders from our webstore for ‘Come Down Safari’ will include an exclusive die-cut sticker based on the cover art.
