Connectivity! is Mahogany´s second full length record, following the holy grail of US indie shoegazer records The Dream of a Modern Day and over a dozen singles & EPs; compiled and released in 2005 as Memory Column 2CD .

Connectivity! embraces Factory Records’ chill, the Cocteau Twins’ radiance, and Brian Wilson’s optimism. It is the group’s most evocative and delicately complex work, employing every instrument, voice, and magic black box within Mahogany’s new studio, the Civil Defense. Mahogany’s massive, celestial, guitar-driven sound is ultimately unique.

Connectivity! is a two disc set featuring three mixes by Cocteau Twins´ Robin Guthrie, the vocal debut of Lucy Belle Guthrie (daughter of Cocteau Twins´ Robin Guthrie & Elizabeth Frazier), and three mpeg videos.

The band will touring the UK in April as special guests of Bloc Party who are big fans of Mahogany. The tour includes two nights at Brixton Academy on 19/20 April. Mahogany also play their own headline show at London´s Water Rats Theatre on Saturday 21 April.

What the US press has said about Mahogany:

“Over the crisp geometry of drum-machine rhythms and rectilinear vocal melodies, a la Stereolab, guitars and celli shimmer and splash, enriching the structures by blurring them. This is heaven-sent manna.” –NEW YORK TIMES

“People who are into dream pop and classic UK shoegazer rock need to give this band a listen, as they’re among the best bands currently
doing this stuff.” –PITCHFORK

“If you take all that is beautiful in this world and distill it into 50 minutes of pure sonic bliss, you’ll have something that sounds a lot like The Dream of a Modern Day. It is, in a word, stunning. Mahogany impresario Andrew Prinz might just be the Kevin Shields of his generation. If there is any justice in this world, by this time next year Mahogany will be huge.” ““SPLENDID

“Bossa beats and one chord ethereal guitar loops never sounded so imaginative, Mahogany are one of the most underrated and criminally overlooked bands of the last decade. Some of the most creative, imaginative and breath-taking music you’ll have ever had the fortune
of hearing. Don’t let this remarkable band go unnoticed any longer.” ““ANGRYAPE

“It’s truly admirable how they’ve managed to come up with an album that sounds so unique and original: A desperately needed wave of fresh air after all the unimaginative retro-ism that’s been dominating the last years.” –ULRICH SCHNAUSS
