Mammoth Life appeared on the Lawrence scene during last November's Farmers Ball-a long-delayed debut for a band that actually formed four years ago. The group's first album "Kaleidoscopic Art Pop" was already completed by the time the seven-piece outfit hit the stage. What began as a collaboration between Nicholas Goss and Elizabeth Mead has evolved into a friendly collective of musicians, artists, filmmakers, poets and clothing designers who share a headstrong vision to craft cheery chamber-pop music and inject a little more sunshine into this crazy, crazy life. The Mammoths will emerge from hibernation this month to play two shows and preview tracks from their forthcoming spaghetti-western opus "An American Movement." The recently hitched Goss and Mead brought two new songs along for our podcast, which also features half a dozen cuts of their earlier musics.
