Pretty sure I’m in trouble financially, as it looks like I’ll have to stump out more money for Trouble in Mind Records as they announce a new LP from Mountain Movers (I’m ready for the TiM LP Subscription Series). Anyways, the Connecticut outfit brandish a psychedelia like no other; it’s a mindfuck of noise rock, filled with screeching guitars and stalking rhythm work. When the vocals enter the picture it’s easy to find yourself lost in some noise-induced trance, unable to find an escape, should you need one. They close it all out with a brash display of noisy musicianship, further seducing your ears and mind…you’re never getting out. But, should you come out safely on the other side, look for Pink Skies to drop on October 5th.
Myfirst listen to Mountain Movers introduced meto the band with notes taken from acts like Spiritualized and the like, but they’re bringing you something that you might find a little more spirited. There’s a rolling movement from the guitars and the pounding rhythm of the drum work, reminiscent of Woods; they provided this sunny hook that rides through the chorus, while still maintaining an effortless cool. They’re about to break out of New Haven and find a place on your record player when Trouble In Mind Records release their self-titled on May 5th.
There’s sprawling rock for self-indulgence, and then there’s Mountain Movers. The New Haven band has just announced they’ll be releasing their new self-titled album via Trouble in Mind Records. This brand new single is a 7 minute opus, stretched out over little psychedelic jams and nonchalant vocal delivery. It’s a crazy beautiful world where the likes of Sonic Youth and Spiritualized are hanging out, trying to deconstruct the modern psych tropes. Dan Greene, the song’s guitarist and vocalist, says the song is about “trouble-makers who follow their vision into unknown world despite the dangers ahead.” My ears welcome that journey into the “unknown world,” awaiting more expansive tunes to open my mind. Join me and grab the band’s album HERE, or wait until it hits your local shop on May 5th.
