Canadian psychedelic rockers Black Mountain are fitting their session for Marc in between dates on their latest UK tour. Possibly not coincidentally their third album, Wilderness Heart is out this month on Jagjaguwar Records.
According to band leader Stephen McBean it's their "most metal and most folk oriented record so far" and was apparently influenced by the following: New Order, King Crimson, Studio 54, Alex Chilton, sunshine, Janis Joplin, Please Kill Me, Shirley Collins, Mickey Newbury, jalapeno salsa, Night of The Hunter, Cactus Taqueria, Funky16Corners podcasts, Dennis Wilson, and the house blowing up in the desert at the end of Zabriskie Point. So the usual suspects then. McBean is also the main man of the similarly named but more experimental band Pink Mountaintops.
