Just Fucking Listen To It:
Farewell, Bastard Mountain
Back in October 2012 I seen Wolf Crystal Ghost Toads perform at Henderson’s on Lothian Road. The “band” had just finished recording a collaborative effort akin to Cold Seeds, a previous collaborative record orchestrated by Song, by Toad Records. After the longest 18 months of my life, during which the band renamed themselves Bastard Mountain, the record Farewell, Bastard Mountain blew me away and has instantly became of my favourites of the year so far. Put together by Cold Seeds alumni Meursault alongside Jill O’Sullivan, Rory Sutherland, Reuben Taylor and Rob St John the tracks are droney yet melodic and despite the mix of songwriters and shuffling round of vocalists it remains cohesive throughout. Go buy it here!
