Black Mountain on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic!



On this St. Valentine’s Day, Black Mountain showed up bright and early to KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic to play a rare radio set for all the lovebirds in the Los Angeles area and beyond.

KCRW posted both video (embed above) and a stream of the 45-minute show for the masses. Spoiler: they begin with 2010’s most romantic indie rock song…

Setlist:
The Hair Song
Old Fangs
Wilderness Heart
Don’t Run Our Hearts Around
Let Spirits Ride

Black Mountain is touring Australia and Europe this spring! Tour dates are here.

Black Mountain’s Steve McBean Appears in New Film – Watch the Trailer

EVERYTHING LOUDER THAN EVERYTHING ELSE TRAILER from Obsolete Films on Vimeo.

A new indie film, a comedy called EVERYTHING LOUDER THAN EVERYTHING ELSE, by Rob Leickner from Obsolete Films debuted at the Whistler Film Festival, and the film features Black Mountain’s own Stephen McBean. I’m really excited about seeing this movie because 1) Vancouver music is awesome 2) the movie is about a woman in the music industry 3) MCBEANNNN! He appears in the above trailer.

A really good interview with Rob and Nardnarduwar the Human Serviette, expounds upon the film, the Hive Studio, how far along in the film the word “fuck” is introduced and various indie rock jargon.  Listen here.

Watch Black Mountain Play Live on Swedish National Television

The Swedish television show Klubbland recently filmed Black Mountain playing in Copenhagen.  Did you know Sweden basically has a Hulu that broadcasts awesome rock concerts, some of them featuring Jagjaguwar artists? WHAT WILL YOU COME UP WITH NEXT, SWEDEN?  Affordable modern furniture?  Mysterious blond duos with insatiable appetites for Lil Wayne and Akon?  LISBETH SALANDER?!!!!

You can watch the entire 20-minute show below, or head to the website to watch the three songs (“Wilderness Heart,” “Queens Will Play” and “Don’t Run Our Hearts Around”) individually.  The 20-minute version comes with a nice intro and interview featuring Steve McBean before the show.

Is it worth it?

Well, I always enjoy playing live.  I don’t always enjoy all the sitting around, but, you know, it’s better than working at Dairy Queen.

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?
