Black Mountain, Majeure

When: Fri., June 24, 8 p.m. 2016

An extended break did Black Mountain a lot of good. After a quick series of three albums of epic-sized psychedelic rock, the Vancouver band seemed to disappear, or at least disperse its members to several side projects, including Stephen McBean’s Pink Mountaintops. But the new IV is one of the year’s most engrossing efforts, volleying between hard-charging anthems loaded with barbed riffs and tight harmonies and space-high drifters made from astral keyboards and intoned vocals. McBean and Amber Webber have never sounded so exquisite together, as they share the vocal workload between light and dark, good and evil. It is a righteous ten-track trip and a welcome renaissance for one of this century’s great rock ’n’ roll powerhouses. —Grayson Haver Currin
