Photos: Black Mountain’s European Tour

Friend to Black Mountain, photographer Andy K. Bond hopped on tour with the band last month. A set of photos at his blog contains STUNNING images of the band in the some of greatest cities in Europe.  Many more photos are at his site here. Below are my personal faves.

Okay, this picture made me clasp my hands in joy.  This photo is of Black Mountain’s trusted sound engineer, Remco, feeding some new Italian friends he met. Have you ever seen cows so beautiful in your entire life?

Watch New Black Mountain Video for “The Hair Song”

Ahh: tender, young, punk love – is there anything better?

A sweet little Black Mountain love connection is made in the new video for “The Hair Song,” directed by Zoe Bower and Simon Chan. “The Hair Song” includes an extremely relatable plot line to any music fans whose coming-of-age years included being shut out of 21+ clubs and finding your crush at the show.

We have a very cool making-of video to share as well! Meet the cast and crew and see the micro-movie magic go down:

Remember, kiddos! Black Mountain’s “The Hair Song” appears on their upcoming album, Wilderness Heart, out on Jagjaguwar on September 14th in the US (13th in the UK).

Watch Black Mountain Perform on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon!

Picture 3

Last night was a total blast! We headed to 30 Rock to go see Black Mountain perform on the first episode since Jimmy Fallon hosted the Emmy Awards.  WHAT A SHOW IT WAS.

The mysterious Scandinavian-looking performer/stylists of “Let Us Play With Your Look” gave a very handsome audience member a new ‘do. The beautiful and radiant Drew Barrymore was promoting her new movie about Long Distance Relayshes, Going the Distance. She faced off with Jimmy in a new game that is similar to the Indiana pastime of “Cornhole.” Snoop Doggy Dogg came out promoting some new charity for the children, but not before he set off the NBC fire alarm from smoking a tonnnnn of you know what in his dressing room.

Black Mountain brilliantly closed out the show with “Old Fangs.” The sound on Fallon is really great – I’ve never heard Jeremy’s Moog sound so awesome. The band got loose and performed the hell out of the song.

Make sure when you’re at the NBC site to watch “Let Us Play With Your Look.”  You’ll bust a gut – shit is so weird.

We chose an order at random, and we basically couldn’t have gotten a better winner.  Jag blog, meet Sean A. of Atlanta, Georgia.
