Melting Vinyl are pleased to welcome to Brighton Pink Mountaintops, the hazy rock band from Steve McBean of Vancouver psych collective Black Mountain. The new album, Get Back, is out through Jagjaguwar April 28, following 2009’s Outside Love.
Giant Drag‘s Annie Hardy raps on ‘North’, the lead track from the record which was inspired 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.”
Pink Mountaintops’ revolving-cast lineup features a number of guests this time around, including J Mascis, Rob Barbato (The Fall, Cass McCombs), Steve Kille (Dead Meadow), Daniel Allaire (Brian Jonestown Massacre), and Gregg Foreman (Cat Power, Delta 72). It was mixed by Randal Dunn, who has worked with Sunn O))) and Marissa Nadler, among others, and mastered by Howie Weinburg (Nirvana, Ramones, Beastie Boys).
Get Back is an exploration and celebration of what, exactly, rock ‘n’ roll can be. Don’t miss Stephen McBean at the Green Door Store.
