The Mountain Movers have, over the course of five albums steadily become New Haven's best kept secret; a band capable of lurching between melancholic indie rock, strident garage/psych and pummeling guitar freak-fuckery. This, their s/t sixth album coalesces the band's vision so succinctly and perfectly, it makes you wonder where they’re been your whole life. "Mountain Movers" starts off with the dark, stormy fourteen minute track "I Could Really See Things". Fading into view with a scree of feedback, the drums and bass start to pound and pummel until the song lurches forward, lumbering purposefully toward slashes of guitar improvisation. Then, in a flash comes the jangling, melodic strum of "Everyone Cares" the a brief "Intro" and "Angels Don't Worry" is next up, finding that sweet spot between murky kraut-tinged psychedelia and acid-fried guitar-noise exploration. "Vision Television" pounds out succinct garage stomp and heavy VU-inflected swagger. The album is bookended by "Jam 2" that fades into a full-bore, head-down krautrock slow burn that somehow sounds like the most melodic of Can's repertoire and Sonic Youth at their most effective improv stages "Mountain Movers" is a tour de force. Bandleader Dan Greene's songwriting hits home when it needs to, but leaves pockets open for the band to stretch out and really find a way inside the songs themselves. "Mountain Movers" is a vinyl-only release, pressed on black vinyl and silver vinyl in a limited run of 500 copies, and includes a insert.
