Beginning as a sprawling home recording project in the summer of sixteen, San Francisco’s Mendonesia have stylized themselves into a preeminent explosion of psych sounds and country licks blended with a harmony laced, pop sensibility. After forming the project and self-releasing twelve songs of bedroom folk, Tom Conneely hit the San Francisco circuit with a revolving cast of band members. Having appeared at SXSW in 2017 and completing two west coast tours, Conneely met Daniel Lavezzo at the famed Sweetwater Music Hall where both worked. Tom as a waiter, Lavezzo interning as a sound engineer.

After a convincing series of acoustic jam sessions and having discovered a shared passion for songwriting and Neil Young, the two joined forces after a Northwestern run of shows from San Francisco to Seattle and back, in which the full band disintegrated, themselves being the last men standing and the only members of the band left by tours end. Some months later, after shedding ideas and songs, Tom and Daniel emerged with Mendonesia’s forthcoming album Spirit Van, due out in the early aught of 2018.

Spirit Van is a definitively un-hip album. These are songs about being bummed out, not having a lot of money, or much to do; while the strata of music on Spirit Van attests to the disappearance of youth and disillusionment in the age of social media. Recorded over the course of the summer and fall of 2017, Spirit Van, saw the coming and going, replacement and flux of recording studios, band members and engineers throughout its conception. But after lasting the course of the sessions, Mendonesia presents a country-tinged testament to the twenty first century. With new members Steve Jaegar and Jake Bartlett in tow, Spirit Van will be released in full March 12, 2018.
