MT Mountain Release Single ‘Peregrination’ Ahead Of New LP Due Via Fuzz Club Records

Australian five-piece Mt. Mountain have shared ‘Peregrination’, the second single from their forthcoming ‘Centre’ album which is due for release February 26th via Fuzz Club Records.

Hailing from Perth, Australia, Mt. Mountain deal in a sprawling, motorik sound that journeys between tranquil, drone-like meditations and raucous, full-throttle wig-outs.

Clocking in at seven minutes, you can now stream the soaring and hypnotic ‘Peregrination’ below.

Prepare to be stopped in your tracks, Mt. Mountain will captivate you and their latest exploration will leave its mark. Peregrination is an experimental vast effort, meandering through these soaring rhythms, intricate elements, and an innovative vision. Mt. Mountain captures this complex orchestration hinging on inventive tendencies to provide this ethereal soundscape.

A dynamic, ever-evolving journey that showcases the power of this far-reaching outfit. Slowly building up their track, layer upon layer, creating such a deep texture of perfectly pitched shuffles and percussion, rolling rhythms, rich guitar sounds, and then the unpredictable flute element. A mesmerizing composition from an act that deserves your full attention. Mt. Mountain captures their intoxicating energy within their work.

The Mt. Mountain sound is born out of long improvised jams so, naturally, much of the incoming album was recorded in a live setting in order to capture the band at their most freewheeling. ‘Peregrination’, out today, articulates their creative approach perfectly (the title itself meaning a long, meandering journey.) The result is a slow-building ensemble of shuffling percussion and Krautrock rhythms, masterfully interwoven with cascading reverb-soaked guitars and lulling flutes that lure the song into acid-folk territory.

They say of the song: “‘Peregrination’ is a classic example of how we write together. Songs like this one generally start off as a ‘jam song’ that evolves slowly over months of playing with no real direction in place until it finds its own structure. At the end of recording, the path to get there has been stretched so long that there is barely any recollection of how the song came into existence in the first place.”

Mt. Mountain is comprised of Stephen Bailey (vocals/organ/flute), Thomas Cahill (drums), Glenn Palmer (guitar/synth), Brendan Shanley (bass), and Derrick Treatch (guitar). With a number of EPs and singles and three albums behind them – their 2016 debut ‘Cosmos Terros’, 2017’s ‘Dust’ and 2018’s ‘Golden Rise’ – the Perth quintet have picked up a formidable reputation in their homeland and further afield, thanks, especially to their wildly all-consuming live shows. Constantly touring across Australia with each release, they’ve also shared the stage with notable down-under comrades like 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.
