Mountains – live dublab “sprout session” (09.26.11)

Mountains is the friendly duo of Brendon Anderegg and Koen Holtkamp. They have released a string of particularly beautiful, expansive albums on Thrill Jockey. Their dublab “sprout session” is like a warm afternoon spent on a distant moon. Roll out your mylar beach blanket under swaying tendrils of gem encrusted palms and lay down to soak in the scene. The aquamarine sand stands in vivid contrast to the silver swirling sea of floral scented gas that laps at your toes in warm billowing clouds. There’s an island in the distance that has purple hues and a halo of light but that’s a swim for another day. Today you are here to climb this mountain of relaxation.
