SPUN: Black Mountain

Black Mountain has developed a nice little niche for themselves since the Vancouver band burst onto the scene in 2004. Listeners are advised to follow these instructions to properly enjoy the fuzzed-out rock of Black Mountain’s latest release In the Future.

1) Roll two joints, joint A and joint B.

2) Put joint A in your left hand

3) Put joint B in your right hand.

4) Light both.

[Editor’s note: HOW? Both hands are full.]

5) Smoke joint A and joint B, alternating between each hand (and each joint).

6) HOLY SHIT MAN, THIS IS TOTALLY AWESOME.

7) Consume Doritos.

The wacked-out psychidelia of In the Future may not be for everyone, but the retro stoner aesthetic that is held within these ten tracks is some of the best in the genre. For the fans of the ’70s classic rock that has had a resurgence in the past few years, In the Future is a perfect album to complement a lazy Sunday spent in the basement after watching Dazed and Confused.
