    • Kim Ruehl

    There’s something so deliciously pure about what happens when Pharis & Jason Romero make music together. From the first notes of “Sweet Old Religion,” the opening tune and title track of their latest album, it’s hard to turn your ears away.

    The Mammals are back with thirteen new songs that remind us why people turn to music in trying times. Indeed, their new album, Sunshiner, is an energetic burst of light at a time when we could all use a little more of both.
