Low-slung, menacing, sinewy music. Dust is an out-and-out epic track; one the best of its kind. Love how these guys are prepared to let dynamics and restraint fuse into something this evocative.
If Pink Floyd's Set The Controls For the Heart of the Sun was re-fashioned to soundtrack a Western, you'd end up with something pretty close to this.
Dust is powerful drone and reverb driven psychedelic goodness. It is only one of four songs on the album. This 17 minute epic is so good, however, that the remaining three songs on the album can be rubber bands strumming and I wouldn't care. Dust is why I love music. Highly recommended.
Cardinal Fuzz are proud to announce the release of the epic “Dust” via Perth quintet Mt. Mountain. Since forming in 2012 Mt. Mountain are already lauded and revered in Australia where they have built a reputation as one of the most compelling live bands, a distinction that has seen them share stages with myriad Australian and international heavyweights including Sleep, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Thee Oh Sees, Endless Boogie, Tortoise, Bardo Pond and Boris. On “Dust” Mt Mountain have laid down 4 tracks that capture the atmosphere of the red/orange landscapes that consume the Australian Outback. Opening with the mini slow burn epic “Dust” which builds with an incessant drone and flute to form a ghostly menacing and meditative rhythmic and repetitive throb that builds and builds before the release comes and the bands shatters into a heady and thunderous elliptical crunch. Over the entire LP Mt Mountain capture, a dreamlike mood of shimmering dust filled landscapes where slow strummed guitars and single note organ lines ebb and flow and bring to mind Dylan Carson’s ‘Earth’ as played by mushroom ingesting elf’s. ‘Dust’ is psych rock meditation music and It is utterly entrancing.
