RIYL: Pink Mountaintops, Wooden Shjips, Earth, Dead Meadow
It’s been over 5 years since Black Mountain’s crispy back-country psych folk graced our headphones and turntables with some new music. ¬†Frontman Stephen McBean has been busy in the interim with his 96 other projects, but the wait is finally over. ¬†Black Mountain is back.
Believe it or not, but¬†there were decades long ago when rock and roll was f-ing king. ¬†Ozzy, Plant, Bolan and Daltrey graced the bedroom walls of teenagers from Sacramento to Jersey, organ solos ran for 5+ minutes¬†and the guitar was the center of the universe. ¬†Black Mountain transports you back to those days with¬†spliff in hand.
As is customary with Jagjaguwar, the limited orange vinyl can only be obtained by snagging the mail order bundle. ¬†This one comes with a CD (remember those?) and a¬†custom pewter model plane, emblazoned with the Black Mountain IV logos. ¬†Check out some seriously sick little teasers of the album HERE, and Bon Week-end, mon frere.
