Mountain Movers releasing new LP via Trouble in Mind (stream it), touring
New Haven, CT’s Mountain Movers have been laying down heavy, hazy psych for a decade now, with five albums and various singles and other releases under their belts. Their new self-titled album will be out this Friday (May 5) via Trouble in Mind and we’re premiering a stream of the whole album. This is get-lost-in-it psych, more interested in grooves than hooks. Here, they drop you in the deep end right off the bat with the 14-minute opening maelstrom “I Could Really See Things,” with rolling bass pulling you along like the tide while feedback and noise crash like waves over you. There are numbers with more recognizable song structure, too, but that squall remains. Listen to the whole thing below.
Mountain Movers are playing shows in May, including a few in Brooklyn: Thursday, May 4 at Rough Trade with Japanese band Kikagaku Moyo and Jason Spacin’ Killinger (tickets); Wednesday, May 10 at Union Pool with Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band, and Richard Papiercuts (tickets); and Bushwick’s Cape House Clam Bar on Saturday, May 20 with Atlanta bands Gringo Star and Shantih Shantih (more info).
