Time for another Ghost Cult “End Of Year” Guest post! We’ll be sharing lists, memories, and other shenanigans from our favorite bands, partners, music industry peers, and other folks we respect across the globe. Faith Coloccia of Mamiffershares her top eleven artists, albums, live concerts of 2019 and beyond with our readers. This marks Faith’s second appearance in our year-end list jamboree and we are honored and grateful for her recommendations, always worth checking out!

Ghost Cult once again brings you “End Of Year” lists, memories, and other shenanigans from our favorite bands, partners, music industry peers, and other folks we respect across the world. Today we are honored to have Mamiffer co-leader Faith Coloccia who shares her eclectic list with us. If you aren’t familiar with Faith’s musical output or any of her other endeavours (she’s a baddass renaissance woman) look her up!
Mamiffer released their new music video for the track ‘Parthenogenesis’ from their forthcoming SIEGE Records release The World Unseen on Apr 1st. You can watch the video at this link or below:
Mamifer is a duo comprised of Faith Coloccia and Aaron Turner (ISIS, Sumac, Old Man Gloom). Next week they kick off their short tour of the US. The World Unseen comes in several formats like CD, 2xLP, and digital formats via SIGE Records in the U.S. (pre-order it here) and as a CD with a bonus disc on Daymare Records in Japan.
