mountainhood

"the counterpart to "wings from a storm". acid-dripping lo-fi euphoric melancholy west coast folk beauty from Michael Curtis Hilde. this dude is seriously prolific, with a fine string of cdr only release under the Moontainhood and Almaden names, but this pair is a real apex of his still unfolding musical vision. "thunderpaint the stone horse electric" is a totally intimate & spontaneously vibed little gem. deeply felt, introverted, hallucinatory, and starry-eyed song stories delivered via fuzzy bedroom fourtrack gush. fevered vocals quiver, warble, double, and swoon around gentle or ragged acoustic guitar, foot-stomping tambourine thud & jingle, harmonium, breezy flute, warm tape hiss, and singing crystal cave atmospherics… we know the animals are dancing…" time-lag
