Drop fuzz-drenched, riff-laden live EP ‘Taboo Sessions’
Featuring tracks from recent debut album ‘Weird Feelings’
Following the release of their debut album ‘Weird Feelings’ late last year, Leeds trio Magick Mountain have dropped ‘Taboo Sessions’ – a 4 track live EP.
The EP sees the band tear through a mini set of fuzz-drenched, riff-laden songs, filmed and recorded in Eiger Studios, Leeds, UK. In lieu of being able to do live shows during the pandemic, Magick Mountain worked with Taboo Sessions to record an energy-filled live version of 4 album tracks, including the album’s three singles; “King Cobra”, “Cherokee” and “Infinity X2″. The mini-set was premiered live online on 30th January 2021 and the tracks are now available worldwide.
The live performance showcases the electronic energy from this mesmerizing act. Deep rhythms, thick grooves, and passages of psychedelic harmonies, what’s not to love. Delve into the immersive live performance. The outfit focus on their core ability to create craft and continue to maintaining their momentus driving force whilst pushing their biting riffs and powerful beats. Throughout the live show the band build up the tension alongside the chugging guitar sound. The captivating lyrics complement the vast atmosphere which simply explodes. The monotonous hard-hitting riffs and the full-bodied enriched soundscape consume you.
Magick Mountain is what happens when the planets align and sees seasoned musician Lins Wilson assume her rightful place; leading this fuzzed out, psychedelic, proto-punk power trio, flame red hair flowing and guitar wailing. Having written and performed with many legendary Leeds bands (including Grammatics & Mother Vulpine), Lins is now flanked by like-minded northern noiseniks Tom Hudson (Pulled Apart By Horses) and Nestor Matthews (Sky Larkin, Menace Beach).
With tales of infinite space, otherworldly escapes, hazy dreams and Weird Feelings that weave together the supernatural and the visceral; Magick Mountain are a power trio with colossal riffs, entwining harmonies and fistfuls of wild, distorted energy. They are quickly carving out a place for themselves at the vanguard of an exciting new movement of high octane garage-rock bands, and now they prepare for their first full length release.
Taking its title from the album’s very opening utterances, ‘Weird Feelings’ surges forth, brimming with tales of fantastical worlds, ancient mythology and mystical metaphors. Yet for all its surrealist imagery and dramatic sonic escapades, at its heart ‘Weird Feelings’ is an album about real life and the truth of its creators. The vivid stories and symbolic references create parallel meanings, blurring real feelings and fantasy worlds. In the band’s own words, the album is “a kind of bastardisation of tales and beliefs, blending together past, present and future“
