The One Hundred :: Mountains - Mountains Mountains Mountains

Just as there are certain records that continually sell year after year, there are some titles that are continually either just under the radar of popularity, or maybe just need a bit of a highlight to remind you they are still out there waiting for new ears. As an experiment we are going to build a list of one hundred titles, all currently in stock, that we think you should lend an ear to.

Mountains - Mountains Mountains Mountains (Thrill Jockey, 2013 [reissue]) /// New Vinyl 

This is a band that happens when a couple of Dutch dudes, Brendon Anderegg, Koen Holtkamp, meet up in Brooklyn and decide to get all glowy with it, form a label (Apestaartje Records... apestaartje being the Dutch word for "at" or "@") and move to Chicago, eventually signing with Thrill Jockey. Over the course of seven records they've create a body of beautiful work that is meditative and pastoral and sometimes stands as tall as their name implies.
