Young Mammals have put in more than a decade as one of the Bayou City’s most exciting and energetic live bands, so it’s not at all surprising that people far beyond Houston have begun to take notice. Last month All Music Guide, the exhaustive online encyclopedia and essential resource for those in the music-writing trade, premiered the quartet’s third full-length LP, Jaguar, the Mammals’ second release on their own Odd Hours Records. Named for French-born director Jean Rouch’s 1967 film about three young men from the country who seek their fortunes in the cities of Ghana’s Gold Coast, Jaguar plots a similar coming-of-age trajectory; the heightened degree of confidence and maturity in the Mammals’ songwriting allows them to conquer every shade of the power-pop spectrum, from exuberant rockers “Auroras” and “Morning Vice” through the soothing, dreamlike “Turfed” and “Rat In the Summer.”
