Black Mountain

2nd October 2012

I’ve been trying to write a piece about Black Mountain for a while now but haven’t been able to find the words to describe them. Or even how to start. It all began for me when a loved one said that they had found a track on a new album that they thought I would love. Cue ‘Wucan’ from second album ‘In The Future’ with the rest of the album and investigation of their back catalogue not far behind. I found myself so obsessed that I eventually had to take a break for a while.

Then came along album number three ‘Wilderness Heart’ to re-ignite my interest and I’m pleased to say that they still sounded as fresh as the first time I heard them. That was how they infiltrated my record collection (and my heart and head) and how I feel it would be incomplete without them. You have been warned…

p.s. They recently put together the soundtrack for a post-apocalyptic surf movie (yes, you did read that correctly) called ‘Year Zero’. Which, by the way is perfect. Only Black Mountain could achieve that.
