BLACK MOUNTAIN

Black Mountain doesn't have a creation myth, or not exactly: "Most of us were found standing 'round parties wearing similar T-shirts or shoes and nodding our heads to something cool on the stereo," Stephen McBean explains. "Others were heard from behind walls but never seen 'til years later. You share a smoke, do a shot then end up in a van together for what seems like the rest of your life."

Photos: Black Mountain’s European Tour

Friend to Black Mountain, photographer Andy K. Bond hopped on tour with the band last month. A set of photos at his blog contains STUNNING images of the band in the some of greatest cities in Europe.  Many more photos are at his site here. Below are my personal faves.

Okay, this picture made me clasp my hands in joy.  This photo is of Black Mountain’s trusted sound engineer, Remco, feeding some new Italian friends he met. Have you ever seen cows so beautiful in your entire life?

Black Mountain very recently performed “The Hair Song” on France’s Canal Plus, and it’s awesome! My college French is a little rusty, but it appears as though Wilderness Heart was their Album of the Week. You can also watch interviews with Jeremy and Steve after the performance that are then overdubbed in en Francais.  Love it.

Black Mountain is Spinning on Spinner!

For us US Americans and such as, you can stream Wilderness Heart in its entirety on the incredible music site Spinner. It’ll be up for a week, just like shark week.

Want a copy for yourself? It’s coming out TOMORROW, and it’ll be in all fine music retailers, both digital and physical.

Psych-Rock Tour of 2010 Begins Today

BMWP_Tour_Poster_web

Since the very moment Jagjaguwar brought UK’s Wolf People into the label fold, the tour pairing of Black Mountain and Wolf People was slated as a “Must Happen” on our label dream list. Well, friends of rock, that  wondrous day has come. Today in Oxford, UK, the stoner jam behemoths get together for a 7-date run of all that is right and hirsute and unkept in the rock world. Boogie on.

Fun Fact: Wolf People’s own Joe Hollick created that killer poster featured above. Probably on his coffee break or something. Joe handles all the Wolf People album art. And well, he kind of nails it most every time.

Black Mountain release Wilderness Heart on Sept. 14, and Wolf People release their first proper full-length, Steeple, on Oct. 12.
