PINK MOUNTAINTOPS – ” Peacock Pools “

Posted: May 2, 2022 in MUSIC

Since their 2004 self-titled debut, Pink Mountaintops have supplied an outlet for the more arcane fascinations of Black Mountain frontman Stephen McBean. On “Peacock PoolsPink Mountaintops’ first new music in eight years — the B.C. singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist shares 12 songs sparked from his magpie-like curiosity for a wild expanse of cultural artifacts: The sci-fi body horror of David CronenbergDisney Read-Along Records from the 1970s, early Pink Floyd and mid-career Gary Numan, John Carpenter movies, Ornette Coleman live videos, a 1991 essay on the cult of bodybuilding by postmodern feminist Camille Paglia.

Featuring counterculture icons like Steven McDonald of Redd Kross and Dale Crover of Melvins, “Peacock Pools” alchemizes those obsessions into a body of work with its own enchanting power, the sonic equivalent of falling down a thousand rabbit holes at once and landing somewhere gloriously strange.”

“Nervous Breakdown” is from Pink Mountaintops‘ upcoming album ‘Peacock Pools’.
