A string band at the core, The Mammals augment their sound with drums and electric guitar to create a collectively harmonized howl as thrilling and rocking as any band currently subverting folk traditions – No Depression

The Mammals are Ruth Ungar, Mike Merenda, and a cohort of compelling collaborators who form a touring quintet on the fiddle, banjo, guitar, organ, bass, and drums. Identifying as subversive acoustic traditionalists or a party band with a conscience,” The Mammals re-emerged from a hibernation period during-which the bands founders explored new songwriting terrain. The Mammals dont suffer from multiple genre syndrome, they celebrate it as if gleefully aware that the sound barriers separating old-timey music, vintage pop and contemporary folk are as permeable as cotton. – Washington Post

“While rooted in acoustic music and lefty politics, these anti-war rants and personal reveries are updated with harmonic polish and smart, melodic twists that could equally appeal to a fan of Fleetwood Mac or Bonnie Raitt.”
Philadelphia Daily News

“The Mammals aren’t the first band to mix an indie-rock sensibility with bluegrass sounds, but they’re gradually becoming one of the best.” – No Depression
