We’re In the Snow Without Horizons Official Video

Maheekats Without Horizons Indie Pop Music

What a wonderful winter it was. I had never lived in the snow before now. What an adventure to be in the mountains. Honestly, what an adventure.

Written, produced, and mixed by Maheekats, mix advice by Larry Crane of Jackpot! Recording Studio.

“The Pretenders influenced ‘Without Horizons’ acts as the EP’s biggest step into straight-forward alternative rock, not that’s a bad thing. The riffs featured on the song once again highlight the wide and talented vocals of Maheekats and the quality of the production (and mixing) are of a fantastic quality. The greatest element of ‘Without Horizons’ is that it features some of the EP’s most well-written lyrics. These lyrics read as poetry and arise as the songs ultimate feature after each listen. Musically it sounds like a seventies inspired heavy rock song but practices a subtle hint of nineties era alternative/garage musical expansion which propels it to be greater after reading (or in this case listening) into it.” READ MORE

Lyrics:

Without horizons there’s a girl beside the road
And like a diamond she is rough around the soul
Go, yeah, go
Time is standing so still around you now
Time is bending a curve around you now
Facing a mirror there’s a man who goes to hell
And like an angel he is fighting with himself
Go, yeah, go
Time is standing so still around you now
Time is bending a curve around you now
They say I’ll get there when I wake up
But when I wake up I’ll be dreaming
And in my dream I’ll watch the time
Time is standing so still
Time is standing so still around you now
Time is bending a curve around you now

 

 

Two Versions of Devotee Bees Single

Maheekats Devotee Bees Album Cover

We Maheekats have played our song Devotee Bees live many times in pubs and clubs, but we hadn’t recorded it yet. We couldn’t decide whether we wanted real drums or a drum machine sound, so we settled on recording both.

This song is about the story of Sri Yukteswar and how “the devotee bees sought the divine nectar of the liberated master.” When you’ve had it with the world and nature is the all-accepting force. Remember we are not alone. Nobody is alone. Also, remember, follow yourself. These are things I’m constantly having to remind myself.

Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

The first version we completed was with the Alesis SR-16, a great drum machine from the 90’s.

For the next version, we commissioned our friend Mario Calire. We sent him the raw files and he recorded the drums in his own studio. We were happy with the results and mixed the tracks right away.

We’re happy with both, but which version do you prefer?

New Maheekat Album Sidetracked

After a long hiatus, and many trials and tribulations, Maheekats release their second full length album, Sidetracked – Arbitrary Sonic Inklings. It’s a collection of tracks that breach the boundaries of genre. There’s a little twist of electronica, a bit of experimental sounds, and a good seasoning of indie rock.

When a Good Friend Makes a Video for You

Girl lighting a match and smiling

We’re very happy to announce that our good friends Ryan and Justin were inspired to create a video for Maheekats’ song The Emptiness.

Here’s what Ryan says…

this video is my love letter to the maheekats, a band that is new to town, having recently migrated from ojai. bassist casey and guitarist/vocalist clara moved here as a duo and then added drummer grace and an additional guitar player by the name of marvin domingeuz, who happens to also play in the fantastic sb band moonblast. since then they have been playing heartbreakingly beautiful sets all over town. maheekats make lovely shoegazer/dreampop songs, and they remind me of bands like the cocteau twins and the pale saints. they recently recorded this song with marvin (who is also an awesome engineer/producer) and when i asked them if i could make a home-made video for them, this was the track they chose. i listened to it, and loved it and immediately knew how i wanted to approach it. hope you all enjoy the song and the accompanying film!

The Emptiness is a song about the faerie people (Sidhe) and the tunnel our spirits use to travel from this world to the next.

Lyrics:
Sidhe and reality
Live side by side in a rooty tree
Where God and the dirt of the earth meet
So the story goes
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen
All I want to do is see the tunnel open up inside
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen like I’m already there

Sidhe and reality
Hold one another so pruriently
Then God quietly understands
So the story goes
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen
All I want to do is see the tunnel open up inside
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen like I’m already there
Like I’m already there

I know I’ve seen you before Love!
I know I’ve seen you before Love!

Sidhe and reality
Live on and on today
Ruthlessly lighting the eyes in the minds of all
So the story goes
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen
All I want to do is see the tunnel open up inside
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen like I’m already there

Maheekats Third Full-Length Release Phosphorus Man

Maheekats Phosphorus Man Album Cover

“This is one of those rare releases that is truly hitting on all cylinders. The music is clever and melodic, and Clara’s singing sounds confident and unrestrained, and cuts right to your soul. The gravity of the music hits you right out of the gate with “The Emptiness”. Other highlights are the urgent sounding “Dungeon” the triumphant “Dragon”, the music box-like “Willie Mangle Blue Cheese” and my favorite “Moon”, which puts a lump in your throat with its moody guitar intro, and its intimate, heart felt lyrics, like any good hors d’oeuvre it really leaves you wanting more. This is a must for any collection, and is one of those albums that will forever define the moment you first heard it.”

The album is available as a CD as well as a Download.

Maheekats Debut Release: God Has a Cadillac Too

Maheekats God Has a Cadillac Too Album Cover

“makes me think of flying dreams, air conditioning and convertible Porsches. That is to say it transports me someplace cool. Day dreamy and breezy without being vacuous, it leaves space to reflect and breathe, giving the music at times a meditative groove. Torchy, lush vocals and lingering melodies sparkle like the California coast on a perfect day; a landscape the musicians are obviously familiar with. Hailing from Maheeland, a mystical portal to other dimensions” Michel Cicero
