Maserati is a band from Athens, Georgia, United States whose sound is best described as a combination of post-rock and psychedelic influences. Their music is instrumental, relying on the standard rock instrumentation of guitar, bass, and drums. They are currently signed to Temporary Residence Limited, based in Brooklyn, New York. Maserati formed in January 2000 and in 2001 self-released their debut EP, 37:29:24. They released a full-length, The Language of Cities, on Kindercore Records in 2002. In 2003, they released the "Confines of Heat" split EP/DVD (also on Kindercore Records) with Gainesville, FL's The Mercury Program.
After a Japan tour in 2004, drummer Phil Horan left the group. Matt Cherry also left the group temporarily, replaced by Tristan Wraight. They released a 7" and a split CD with Cinemechanica and We Versus the Shark on Hello Sir Records in 2004.
In early 2005, Matt Cherry re-joined the band and Jerry Fuchs stepped in on drums. The group began pursuing more of a psychedelic and space rock-influenced sound and signed with Temporary Residence in 2007, releasing the full-length Inventions for the New Season. In 2008 they issued a 12" featuring remixes of songs from Inventions for the New Season by Thee Loving Hand and Justin Van Der Volgen. They followed this with a split LP with Zombi in early 2009, and a rarities collection, Passages, on Temporary Residence later that same year.
