Song of the Day: MASZER – Fata Mirage


Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s song, featured on the Midday Show with Cheryl Waters, is “Fata Mirage”, a 2015 self-released single by Seattle group MASZER.

MASZER – Fata Mirage (MP3)

After touring the world with Reignwolf, opening for The Pixies and Black Sabbath, musicians David T. Rapaport and Joseph Braley teamed up with Seattle-based singer Katie Blackstock, whose haunting vocals round out the dynamic new sound of MASZER. Combining classic psychedelic rock with distinct Middle Eastern grooves, the self-proclaimed cross-genre band serves up “psychedelic hot sludge sundaes at a kosher pizza party in the desert.” In the group’s latest single, “Fata Mirage,” the newly-formed trio brings elements of 90’s nostalgia and danceable melodies to center stage to create an upbeat and fresh track.

MASZER’s debut EP is slated for release in December, and the band plans to donate at least 10% of its profits to fellow artists to help support indie music. Keep an eye on the band’s website and facebook page for updates. For now, enjoy the official video for “Fata Mirage” below:
