It's only a cliche because it's true, but the greatest records are timeless. Black Mountain's self-titled debut album is just such a record, its roots leading twisting paths back into the past, while always sounding like 'now', like a future still to come. The work of a small collective of musicians operating from Vancouver, Canada, far from any industry buzz but firmly in the eye of their own storm of creativity, Black Mountain's debut album was, of course, a beginning, but it also marked an ending for Jerk With A Bomb, the group that preceded Black Mountain.

Watch // Pink Mountaintops Shares New Video For “Ambulance City”, New Album ‘Get Back’ Out April 29th

A few weeks ago Stephen McBean, of Black Mountain, shared news that a new Pink Mountaintops album Get Back will be out April 29th and you had the chance to hear the new (beautifully filthy) track “North Hollywood Microwaves”.

Today, Pink Mountaintops have shared a new video for “Ambulance City”, the first track from the upcoming album via Noisey premiere.

The new video by Olivia Jaffe features Stephen McBean and band in glorious VHS resolution with more costume changes than you can shake a badass stick at. According to McBean, the video came together after he heard director Jaffe about her still-working 80’s VHS camera. This video marks the first time they’ve worked together since 1431 while serving drinks at Joan of Arc’s execution (no need to check the history books on that one, we can say from being there that it’s true).

Pre-order Get Back on iTunes, Amazon, SCD Bundle, and your local record store.
