MP3:

so today is canadian day. here are two serious bands hailing from paradise on earth, vancouver b.c. both bands are on Jagjaguwar in the US. i was lucky enough to see The Pink Mountaintops play this summer in vancouver. almost-naked guys with tambourines are always a good time. Pink Mountaintops is really Stephen McBean, he reaches into the murk of Black Mountain to draw out some help executing his songs "conceived at dawn, while high on a mix of trucker speed and Red Bull, and while sailing down a Colorado highway on route to Denver as the last decent Floyd record played on the cassette deck." so, for obvious reasons, if you look closely you will notice some in-breeding between the two bands. and appropriately so, as both touch on the psychedelic side of intense rock.

that lil' music scene in vancouver is pretty intense. . . you have these two bands, plus other gems like S.T.R.E.E.T.S. (can't believe i haven't posted something of theirs yet), The Organ, Radio Berlin, and more. and again i have to ask myself, why don't i live there again? oh yeah, i'm not canadian (yet). hey Tegan & Sara, either of you guys looking for a green card? i can clean and build stuff, really.

• Black Mountain - Druganaut

• The Pink Mountaintops - Rock 'n Roll Fantasy
