Black Mountain: Stormy High
Black Mountain: In the Future (Rhythmethod)

The other night I was watching Richard Linklater's '93 movie Dazed and Confused, that terrific look at a bunch of Middle America slacker and stoner teenagers on their last day of school in '76 -- and the soundtrack of Alice Cooper, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kiss, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and so on.

My guess is that Black Mountain from Vancouver watch it on their tour bus, they lock right into that heavy riffing - and get a little ambitious in places.

This is slightly psychedelic prog-rock (emphasis more on the rock) and if you ever rated Bad Company, Ted Nugent, Black Oak Arkansas and the like (and most people don't these days) then this is for you.

Most of you could comfortably pass this by -- unless you happened to have seen Dazed and Confused again recently.

(The album title is, I am hoping, a joke.)
