New music spotlight:

Black Mountain Wilderness Heart

I’ve heard Black Mountain compared to lots of other bands, from The Mars Volta to Eagles of Death Metal. After opening for Coldplay and being on the Spider-Man 3 soundtrack, it seemed likely that the band might garner some mainstream attention. Instead, they released the prog-y, wonderful In the Future in 2008, and now they’ve returned with Wilderness Heart. Have a listen:

Black Mountain – “The Hair Song,” from Wilderness Heart, out now on Jagjaguar
