RIYL: Appleseed Cast, Mogwai, 65daysofstatic
Label: Spartan Records
Spartan Records proudly welcomes Man Mountain to the family â€” a melodic, instrumental post-rock outfit from Southeast Michigan. In the honorable lineage of bands like The Appleseed Cast, Sigur Ros, and American Football, Man Mountain’s debut recordÂ Infinity Mirroris a journey of emotive dynamics set against a swirling dreamlike ferocity. Song by song, the album progresses with an intentionality that allows delicate melodies, motifs, and nuances to build into quaking full-band aggression. Thematically, the album presents a constant duality. Aptly titledÂ Infinity Mirror, it is hard to ignore the unending and cycling conflict associated with any type of prolonged reflection. Sonically translated, this pondering plays as understated notes and moments reverberating into upheaval and dissonance.
There are only 300 copies of the vinyl to go around, 100 copies on black smoke vinyl and 200 copies onÂ a monochromatic splatter slab.Â Â Check out the first available track Memory Trace below.
First pressing limited to 300 copies on 180 gram vinyl:
â€¢ White / Clear / Silver Striped with Black Splatter (200)
â€¢ Clear with Black Smoke (100)
Full color jacket printed on reverseboard stock with black dust jackets and a 12" x 12" insert.
