WATCH // Pink Mountaintops Shares “Shakedown” Video Dir. By Simon Chan ft. J. Mascis, Plays FYF Fest This Weekend, EU Dates Start 8/28


A few days in front of their appearance at FYF Fest, Pink Mountaintops have shared a new video for “Shakedown“, off of their latest LP Get Back. Premiering via Stereogum this morning, the video stars Mandy-Lyn Antoniou and dives into a world fueled by headphone sounds, video games and mixed drinks, all the while featuring a cameo by the legendary J. Mascis. ‘Shakedown’ also marks a reunion between Stephen McBean and director Simon Chan, who previously worked together on Black Mountain’s “Hair Song”. For those of you across the pond, be sure to catch the band on their upcoming upcoming European tour. Watch the video above or on Scry Pictures YouTube page here.

Get Back is available now via iTunes, SC Distribution, Amazon, and your local record store.

Steve McBean’s Pink Mountaintops will be traveling across Europe this November as a duo – he’ll be joined by American musician Gregg Foreman (Cat Power, Delta 72).

If you didn’t catch this earlier it’s worth mentioning again – Pink Mountaintops perform as “Metal Problem” in the new movie Everything Louder Than Everything Else and play a new song that totally rules called “Through All the Worry.”

Pink Mountaintops are METAL PROBLEM Watch “Through All the Worry”

Steve McBean and his band, Pink Mountaintops, were cast and appear as the band Metal Problem in the new film by Vancouver director Rob Leickner, Everything Louder Than Everything Else. The movie follows a woman who owns a recording studio, and Metal Theory records the song “Through All The Worry,” a new song by Pink Mountaintops. Steve McBean also performs in the movie (with lines and everything!). I totally buy that he’s in a rock band.

Everything Louder Than Everything Else is screening at the Plaza Theatre in Calgary on 6/20 at 9pm.

Pink Mountaintops will perform at Fuck Yeah Fest on September 3rd!

The Hippest Kids Listen To Okkervil River

Picture 3

Okkervil River and Roky Erickson played an Ice Cream Social to possibly their youngest audience to date (although sharing music with youth is a passion Will Sheff has shown before). Sponsored by Ice Cream Man and the FYF Festival, the event was open to all ages, and the kids came out in numbers, digging into free scoops of ice cream as they listened to Roky and Okkervil River perform. While some seemed more interested in the ice cream than the music, there were definitely some discerning listeners in the bunch. When the band opened up the floor for a Q&A, Roky and crew fielded such questions as “Why is the Zombie song so loud?” and “What’s your opinion on ukuleles?” (!) And when one little girl was asked “is this your first rock show?” her mother quickly secured her child’s hipster cred by interjecting “oh, she went to see Patti Smith,” discerning indeed!  All and all this was a wonderful wonderful event that makes all those dark bar shows drab in comparison and begs the question of why more rock n’ roll can’t be a family affair?
