Electric Mountain Sign to Electric Valley Records

Posted in Whathaveyou on June 12th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

Last year, Mexico City heavy rock trio Electric Mountain released their self-titled debut album through Loud, Slow, Distorted Riffs Records, and it’s newly announced that the three-piece of GibMax and JB will make their follow-up through Electric Valley Records. Well, actually, that’s a surmise, because all the word that’s really been put out at this point is that the band has signed to the label. There’s nothing said about what will actually come out — maybe a reissue of the record they did for LSDR, or maybe something new. Maybe both? Neither? The mystery is killing me.

What matters is the fuzz, and Electric Mountain pretty much live inside of it. Their self-titled starts out with the classic stoner powerhouse push of “Free Woman” and whether it’s the ’70s-style stomp of “Dune,” the acoustic interlude “Into the Maelstrom” or the Goatsnaked riffing of “Green Mountain Side” that follows to lead into the softshoe-worthy boogie of “Down on the Road,” the THC-soaked vibe remains prevalent and there isn’t anywhere that Electric Mountain go that isn’t natural sounding and seemingly in the wheelhouse for good-time-seeking riff heads. As to what their next record might bring whenever it arrives, I’ve no idea, but if they can keep the organic production of their debut intact, they should be well on their way to carving their own niche in terms of sound and aesthetic within the genre.

The self-titled is streaming at the bottom of this post. Cool shit is happening in Mexico. Dig it:

Electric Valley Records is proud to announce the signing of the Mexican Stoner Rock band *** ELECTRIC MOUNTAIN ***

Electric Mountain is a Stoner Rock band born in Mexico City in 2013.

Formed by Gib (guitar – voice), Max (drums) and JB (Bass), the band gives life to a series of rock influences from the Rock of the 70’s and Stoner’s 90’s, which shake walls and floors.

His powerful riffs and heavy drums are the perfect hook to stay focused on the message of his music and receive all the energy that emanates. ?
