The Mallard, The Hooded Hags and Feel Young

The Mallard, Hooded Hags, Feel Young

When: Sun., March 24, 8 p.m. 2013

The Mallard are quickly becoming one of the more recognizable groups hailing from the Bay Area's fertile psych-garage set. Originally the solo project of Greer McGettrick, the Mallard's first recordings were selfless slabs of fuzzy punk set to warbly, thin percussion. The band has beefed up since then from trio to quartet, and their 2012 Castle Face Records debut Yes on Blood showcases both McGettrick's patience for the craft of the lo-fi recording process as well as a knack for hiding hooks under lots of squealing ax work. Forget for a second that the band has been more or less weaned from the(e) Oh Sees teat; the Mallard are a solid band deserving of autonomy, and you'd do well to catch them while you can. RYAN J.
