Chicago experimental duo reminiscent of Stars of the Lid, Fennesz and
Brian Eno, Mountains come to Cardiff to play material from their new
album Air Museum. Labelmates with Tortoise, OOIOO and The Boredoms,
Mountains live up to the experimental ethos of the Thrill Jockey.
For their new live set, Mountains has created a patch that will enable their electronics to sync up at various times, so while the musicians react to one another musically, given the right parameters, the machines can react to one another as well.
“Holtkamp and Anderegg deliver a kind of 21st century folk music – one
that’s immersed in the aesthetics of modern technology yet retains a
very natural, very approachable sound. Absolutely gorgeous music”
Support comes from Simon Scott (ex Slowdive) & K Matthew Jones
The Wire Magazine say: “Scott is particularly adept at layering coolly shimmering guitars and dark churning currents of noise into something vast. A haunting aspect of ‘Navigare’ is how it seems to contain traces of tunes that stand out like half-forgotten relics of the past”.K. Matthew Jones is a guitarist from Cardiff who will be playing a brief live set in which he attempts to emulate his spiritual heroes, the Leeds nu-rave quartet Hadouken!
