Guided-Tour-Black-Mountain_0615083857437_16x9_620x350


“Me and Josh and Amber were in a different band with our friend Christoff [Hoffmeister, Jerk With a Bomb], we were touring around and we’d grown from a two-piece to a three-piece to a four-piece within three albums. During the last tour, we were essentially playing the first Black Mountain record. Then we kind of imploded and regrouped. I don’t know, it was weird. Basically, [Jerk] had recording time at the Hive booked and we were going to record and then Christoff got sick so then I used the time, as opposed to throwing it away, to record the first Pink Mountaintops record. And then Christoff left and then me and Josh [Wells] recorded a bunch of the first record at our space, and then Matt [Camirand] joined, and Jeremy [Schmidt] joined and then Amber [Webber] and we finished our first record at the Hive. It was an exciting time. – Black Mountain Founder Stephen McBean

LISTEN // Sharon Van Etten Shares “Just Like Blood”, “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP Out June 9th


“Sharon Van Etten could sing the instruction manual for a dishwasher and make it sound like lyrical poetry. Over the course of four full-lengths, her voice has only evolved and grown both bolder and more nuanced. Van Etten plays every word like an instrument, bending one note into the next with a woozy purr that’s sometimes sensual, sometimes heartbreaking but always arresting.”
NPR Music’s “Songs We Love”

Couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’ve been working on Sharon Van Etten’s next project ‘Sharon Sings Your Favorite Instructional Manuals” EP for a while now. In the meantime, check out new track “Just Like Blood” from the upcoming “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP, out 6/3 via Jagjaguwar. This second single is as sophisticated and evolved as anything Van Etten has ever created. Listen above or on our SoundCloud page.

“I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP EP is available now for pre-order. Instant free downloads of “Just Like Blood” and the EP’s title track come with each digital pre-order.

Pre-Order I Don’t Want to Let You Down via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, or your local record store.

LISTEN // Unknown Mortal Orchestra Share Track “Can’t Keep Checking My Phone” Via Vulture, Album ‘Multi-Love’ Out 5/26


Today via Vulture, Unknown Mortal Orchestra shares the freshest glimpse into one of the most anticipated records of the year, Multi-Love, out May 26th on Jagjaguwar. “Can’t Keep Checking My Phone” is perhaps one of the most surprising songs on the new record (their third full-length). It features four-on-the-floor beats, handclaps, and acrobatic bass-lines, a song that could feel at home on a Georgio Moroder record, and further highlights Ruban Nielson’s refinement as a vocalist. It’s the most dance floor-ready song UMO has made to date. Nielson had this to say of the song:

“Cant Keep Checking My Phone” is about missing somebody and that point where you refuse to accept online “connectivity” as a substitute for being with someone IRL. When someone you love turns into text and ideas delivered through a device, at some point they’re competing with real things like the aurora borealis, which is another thing that only really makes sense in the flesh. I also read somewhere that the universe might be holographic, and in that case maybe the distance between us is just an illusion. So do you fall in love with the idea of someone? Or the chemicals they give off in person? Either way, I’ve got to get off my phone.

Also, Ruban has shared the lyrics to “Can’t Keep Checking My Phone.” Check them out on his Instagram here

Pre-order Multi-Love via SCD/direct, Amazon, iTunes, your local record store.
