Relaxed Swedish indie-rock band Mount by way of new single ‘Rocket Ride’ taken from their new self-titled album. The quartet is led by Jacob Johansson, he who provides the ‘words and music’ punctuated well by Filip Leyman (drums and synthesizers), Karl Vento (electric guitar and organ) and Knut Källgren (Bass). The album and single were
recorded, produced and mixed by Filip Leyman in Studio Underlandet.
Whilst it does not directly emulate any of them, there is a lot to love in here for fans of Granddaddy and The Shins, the Suncave Recordings signings cook up a fairly strong release, ‘Rocket Ride’ will turn the odd new head towards the worthwhile Mount. 7.7/10
