"Who cares if the first song sounds like an "Eye of the Tiger" remix, it's still a cool album!" - random blog entry





"It’s been four years since Maserati’s released anything, and we couldn’t be more pumped on its new instrumental crop. If Sonic Youth were making an amazingly-produced Kraut-rock album, they’d turn to this quartet for advice. Listen to this loud and get blown to bits." - 8LR8R





"Maserati combine the repetitive pulse of Ash Ra Tempel and Neu! with '70s psych-rock to create a sort of imaginary soundtrack to car chase scenes. “Inventions...” pushes the adrenaline meter all the way to 11, and we'll be damned if this doesn't work in both a stadium setting and on the alternative dancefloor."

- Othermusic.com





"The group's first album in four years unfolds as if David Sylvian's collaborations with Fripp were concocted under the heavy influence of Krautrock and killer acid. Hypnotic and menacing at once, the disc displays incredible growth within the band, and is easily their best to date." - Stomp and Stammer Magazine





"This instrumental quartet cite '70s cosmic rock from Germany as the model for their iridescent guitars and precisely calibrated hypnorhythms. What they actually sound like, though, is as non-obscure as imaginable - the world-conquering U2 of The Joshua Tree." - Blender Magazine





"Headbanging never felt so good. " - Textura.org





"Ever wonder what the soundtrack to a mustachio-ed '80s rebel cop film would sound like? Well, Maserati does. And that's what Inventions For the New Season, the instrumental quartet's first album in four years, is. The record is so expansive it begs to be described in cinematic rather than sonic terms..." - Venus Magazine



"I love post-rock as much as the next fellow. Explosions in the Sky, Mono, Red Sparrowes… they’re all great. But sometimes, I can’t help but feel like there’s something the genre is kinda missing. It needs some soul, some funk. There’s no good reason a tune can’t be epic and still groove. Fortunately, Maserati agrees . " - Pop+Politics



"Inventions for the New Season has a noticeably different feel than past Maserati releases, eschewing the dynamic touch-and-go for a more streamlined, cinematic and ominous “chase scene” sound. Seriously, it is the sound of getting chased through your own neighborhood by dudes ready to pounce. But there’s optimism here: It’s your hood, you know the shortcuts and safety is imminent. Needless to say, it’ll get the blood pumping. Movie theater music with a home stereo intimacy, Maserati have returned and are ready to tear shit apart; sometimes with a gentle touch, others with a battle axe to the chest." - ScissorKick.com





"Cut adrift when Kindercore Records went dormant a few years ago, this Athens, Georgia, band took the separation in stride. Since then, their musicianship and songwriting have evolved, resulting in a more deliberate and energetic style that evokes a broader range of experience. On this, their first new album in four years, Maserati gets everything right." - Brainwashed.com





"Smooth-riding sex rock" - Rolling Stone Magazine





"As far as the crowd going crazy, Maserati took the cake. No contest. I saw people LITERALLY doing the 'we're not worthy' move from Wayne's World at the end of the show. They're an instrumental line up who put the drums in the front, lots of delay, and they're really intense and dynamic. People didn't even go this crazy with some of the bigger bands. Kiss would be jealous of an audience responce like they got." - Buzznet.com





"I have never been one to steer clear of hyperbole, and so it is with great pride and conviction that I embark on this over- the-top endorsement of what may well be the greatest band to ever call Athens home. From their early days as post-emo-reformed-math experimenters, Maserati showed promise, but with last year's addition of dynamo Jerry Fuchs (who for my money is the greatest living rock drummer), the group embraced the misunderstood and oft-maligned universe of psychedelic rock, introducing a healthy dose of Pink Floyd and Can to their already compelling prog-punk mix. Drunk on the power of this newfound experimental freedom, Maserati continues to evolve in ways their built-in hipster audience might not fully appreciate but lovingly laps up all the same." - Athens Banner-Herald
