Formidable sonic entity Black Mountain occupies a persistent haze that smells a lot like burnt rope and sounds like the ’70s — in the best possible way.

Fans of Vancouver-born psych-rock band Black Mountain have awaited a new full-length since the 2010 release of “Wilderness Heart.” The band’s roster also performs in Pink Mountaintops with members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Black Angels and Cat Power.
From sci-fi soundtracker Sinoa Caves to gothy duo Lightning Dust and hard-core act Obliterations, Black Mountain’s members all have heady side projects. As formidable sonic entity Black Mountain, Stephen McBean and company occupy a persistent haze that smells a lot like burnt rope and sounds like the ’70s—and I mean that in the best possible way.
Black Mountain released “IV” on Jagjaguwar on April 1. Their tour hits Launchpad at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4. Tickets are $15.
