Black Mountain Hop

Black Mountain Hop

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.


Black Mountain

Wednesday, May 4, 9 pm

Launchpad, 618 Central SW

 764-8887, launchpadrocks.com

Tickets: $15

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.

    My two-piece professional band has just released it’s first full length CD called "Dark". We are interested in having it reviewed and if you’d care to, we’d wouldn’t turn down an interview. Alchemie is based in Albuquerque. We’re two baby boomers who made music a career while living in San Francisco CA. We moved to ABQ in 2015 and have been performing throughout the region.
