Australian five-piece Mt. Mountain are today announcing their fourth album, ‘Centre’, and sharing the first single ‘Aplomb’. Hailing from Perth, Australia, Mt. Mountain deal in a sprawling, motorik psychedelic rock sound that journeys between tranquil, drone-like meditations and raucous, full-throttle wig-outs that’ll blow your mind as much as your speakers. Now signed to Fuzz Club Records, ‘Centre’ is due out February 26th check out the first cut, ‘Aplomb’, below.

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.”

Releases February 26th, 2021

Mt Mountain are very excited to announce that we have signed with Fuzz Club Records. Details on the incoming release coming soon!

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.  Both songs are hazy early morning ebbing drifts that don’t so much flower, as they manage to hold you in suspension, teetering on the edge of gliding lysergic flight, nearly existing in the background, though ever-present enough to hold your wayward attention with disembodied emancipated delight, filled with wanderlust and super low-keyed visionary splendour.

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. This band puts you under a blissful lysergic spell. I can not wait for a new record.

With a number of EPs and singles and two full-length albums behind them – their 2016 debut ‘Cosmos Terros’ and 2018’s ‘Golden Rise’ – Mt. Mountain have picked up a formidable reputation in their homeland and further afield. As far as live shows go they’ve played shows with such notable Aussie comrades as King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and ORB, as well as a long list of international heavy-hitters including Sleep, MONO, Thee Oh Sees, Acid Mothers Temple and Moon Duo. It’s for good reason that this lot have been busy earning their stripes over the last few years and we’re incredibly excited to start showing you what they have in store in the coming weeks and months… watch this space!
