LISTEN // New Black Mountain Single/Origin Song “Black Mountain (demo)”

This morning Stereogum premiered the second single released for the 10th Anniversary Edition of Black Mountain. The song “Black Mountain (demo)” wasn’t on the original album, but will be on the deluxe reissue.

Here’s what bandleader Stephen McBean said about the song:

Jerk With A Bomb was playing a show at Pat’s Pub in Vancouver. It must’ve been 2003. The night before I had a dream that if we were called Black Mountain we would become an unstoppable rock ‘n’ roll force. In the morning, a banner was created on a old sheet with a few jiffy markers and our opening theme song was composed. I believe we played it live a few more times enhanced with synchronized dance, then left it to rest for 10 odd years on a mini disc in a dusty box, but that evening through dream, banner and song Black Mountain was born.

The 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition is a double-LP including 8 bonus tracks on limited edition colored vinyl, using foil-print on the first pressing of the litho-wrap gatefold packaging. The records themselves are limited-edition color matched grey double vinyl, as well as standard black vinyl and double disc CD, which are also available with limited edition foil-printing. It includes the original classic album paired with the Druganaut 12″ plus 4 previously unreleased tracks.

WATCH // Foxygen Releases Official Video For “21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic”

The title song from Foxygen‘s debut album We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, gets a psychedelic and trippy visual from director William Doyle of Neighborhood Watch Films. Watch the video above or HERE on YouTube to see singer Sam France running around Calvary Cemetery in Queens summoning the spirits just as he does on stage.

That same stage energy ended the band’s summer tour a bit early when Sam had an accident at First Avenue in Minneapolis in July. Doctors confirmed he completely fractured his tibia and fibula and underwent reconstructive surgery.

However, they said they are confident he will be able to perform in time for Austin City Limits and Foxygen‘s October dates in New York City All fall tour dates preceding ACL have been cancelled. Read more to see those dates and the band’s performance of “Make It Known” at Pitchfork Music Festival this past summer below.
