Vancouver rockers Black Mountain dropped by KCRW’s studio for a Valentine’s Day extravaganza of raw rock ‘n’ roll. Jason said it was just the wake up call he needed on post-Grammy Monday. I’ve been loving their album, but they are most definitely a LIVE band. You can tell they are so tuned into each other and revel in playing together. The duel vocals of guitarist Stephen McBean and Amber Webber (wow, what a voice!) are really the key, heard best on “Hair Song.” We’re also partial to “Druganaut,” part of which is used in the theme for KCRW’s show “Unfictional.” Yesterday’s version was a real psychedelic jam.
Enjoy and watch the full performance here.
