Head For The Mountains

Early in 2009, Mountains released the critically acclaimed Choral, their first album for Thrill Jockey Records and by the end of the year, they had released Etching, a live document they recorded for and sold on their 2009 tour. Both releases were eagerly snapped up and Etching, repressed by Thrill Jockey because the original CD version was sold out, quickly became an out of print collector's item as well. Choral also popped up on several year-end lists, including those of the Los Angeles Times and UNCUT. The new year is upon us and Mountains is getting ready to bring their uniquely transcendent live show to the East Coast and Midwest.

The tour dates are as follows...
Jan 27 Buffalo, NY Soundlab w/Tape
Jan 28 Chicago, IL Empty Bottle w/Tape
