ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Pink Mountaintops Announces New LP ‘Get Back’ Out April 29th, Listen to “North Hollywood Microwaves” Via Stereogum PremierePosted: February 5th, 2014 by Andrew
Stephen McBean, of Black Mountain, has shared news that a new Pink Mountaintops album is on the way.
New LP Get Back, out April 29th (28th in Europe), picks up where Stephen left off on Outside Love in 2009, with a collection of songs partly inspired by Stephen’s new home base of Los Angeles, but also much more. Stephen says the album is influenced by “Alleys, curbs, walls, and cigarette-stained gig flyers. An island on the Pacific coast. Fake British towns. Slayer posters. The beauty of youth. It’s about listening to ‘Driver’s Seat’ and ‘Guns of Brixton’ and hotboxing The Duster.”
The new album is produced by Joe Cardomone [The Icarus Line] and pulls from a wealth of talented Los Angeles musicians including J Mascis, Gregg Foreman [Cat Power, Delta 72], Daniel Allaire [Brian Jonestown Massacre], Stephen Kille [Dead Meadow], and Rob Barbato [Darker My Love, The Fall, Cass McCombs]. To fin ish up the record, Stephen called upon Randal Dunn [SunnO))), Earth, SunCity Girls, Boris] who mixed it at Avast! Studios [Bikini Kill, Mudhoney, Christ On A Crutch, Soundgarden] in Seattle and Howie Weinburg [Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Danzig, Ramones, Slayer] who mastered it in Laurel Canyon.
With all that in mind, excited fans can preview the new album by listening to an awesome new track “North Hollywood Microwaves”, which is maybe the filthiest song we’ve ever released. It features rapping from Annie Hardy [Giant Drag] and can be heard via Stereogum or above via our Soundcloud. Put on some headphones and get weird with Stephen and Annie.
