PINK MOUNTAINTOPS Ready New Album, “Outside Love” CD/LP

Jagjaguwar is proud to announce the upcoming release of “Outside Love” by PINK MOUNTAINTOPS, ten songs of love and hate that read like a Danielle Steele romance novel, but that would probably make for bad television.

“Outside Love” is the third album by Pink Mountaintops, AKA Stephen McBean, who has slowly emerged as a distinctive voice and a very special contributor to the North American songbook. A veteran of the Vancouver/Victoria punk rock scene, McBean is best known for his contributions to acclaimed rock band Black Mountain, as principal songwriter, guitarist and co-vocalist.

The ten songs on “Outside Love” are about or influenced by weddings in Montreal, winter, Pink Floyd’s The Final Cut, Christmas albums, that one Exile song and that one Echo and the Bunnymen song, the Bermuda Triangle, being depressed in the sunshine, people who haven’t made out yet but will in the future, The Everly Brothers, clowns in the ceilings, and bedrooms where skinheads used to live.

Pink Mountaintops has one planned live engagement on May 8 at the ATP Vs. The Fans weekend at Butlins Holiday Resort in Minehead, England. Tickets are going fast, so don’t hesitate on this one. Joining Pink Mountaintops will be The Jesus Lizard, Devo, Spiritualized, Shearwater, and a boat load of more bands.
