The Perth-based psych/Krautrock group Mt. Mountain are today announcing their fourth full-length, ‘Centre’, and sharing the first single, ‘Aplomb’. Their first release on Fuzz Club, the incoming album is due for release on vinyl, CD and tape on February 26th 2021. Australian five-piece Mt. Mountain are today announcing their fourth album, ‘Centre’, and sharing the first single ‘Aplomb’.

Taking cues from Krautrock pioneers like Neu! and Can whilst existing in a similar world to contemporaries like Moon Duo, Kikagaku Moyo and Minami Deutsch, Mt. Mountain are formidable torchbearers of the minimal-is-maximal tradition. Out today, ‘Aplomb’ was one of the first songs written for the album and marked a conscious shift of focus towards more rhythmic patterns within their music. Stephan Bailey (vocals/organs/flute) reflects on the song: “‘Aplomb’ is essentially the voice that I hear in my head, reminding me to not rush and slow down, and to have the confidence to bring this into practice in everyday life. We wanted there to be this clear contrast here between the tempo of the song and the lyrical content, an approach which appears throughout the album.”

Very excited to announce that we have signed with Fuzz Club Records. Details on the incoming release coming soon! through fuzzclubrecords: “We’re super excited to announce that we’ve signed the great mt.mountain for their incoming third album – the details of which will all be revealed soon!
Hailing from Perth, Australia and forming in mid-2012, Mt. Mountain deal in just about everything we love here at Fuzz Club: a sprawling, motorik psychedelic rock sound that effortlessly journeys between tranquil, drone-like meditations and raucous, full-throttle wig-outs that’ll blow your mind as much as your speakers.

Bailey describes how, thematically, much of ‘Centre’ is a dissection of faith – both spiritual and secular – and his personal, often complicated relation to it: “The album for me, lyrically, is mostly about my experience of religion. It explores these concepts and the rules that were told to me from childhood to adulthood and my thoughts on my own connection to them. Similar themes arise between the tracks whether it be lyrically or structural, both a play on repetition and simplicity.”

‘Aplomb’ is lifted from Mt. Mountain’s incoming fourth album ‘Centre’, due for release February 26th 2021 on Fuzz Club Records. You can pre-order the album on vinyl, CD and tape here:
