Mt. Mountain - Cathedral
Cathedral is the first single from Golden Rise, Mt. Mountain’s third LP in as many years. Recorded at Studio Sleepwalkers Dread with Ron Pollard (Tangled Thoughts of Leaving, Meniscus, Hideous Sun Demon), it follows on from 2017’s conceptually ambitious Dust. Whereas Dust unfolded like a long-take of harsh but beautiful desert landscapes, Golden Rise’ reveals itself like a series of photographs in song form; 10 tracks that stand on their own, yet best experienced in reference to each other and the album’s celestial evocations. Harking back to Mt. Mountain’s 2016 debut Cosmos Terros, Golden Rise is mood music for all occasions – equally fit for night drives, contemplative stasis or revelations in darkened rooms.
