    Appears on FR022: Secret Mountains - Rainer LP


    Friends Records presents the debut long player from Baltimore’s Secret Mountains, a young sextet whose handful of EPs and singles have captured a new take on an ancient yearn for psychedelic exploration via the deep soul, heavy pop and lush noise they’ve grown up engulfed in.

    Rainer is the dark answer to each member’s storm, prompting listeners to roar through their own tempestuous experiences. It is an inclement but brave battle fought by the authoritative percussion of Chris Muccioli, the calculated frenzy of Jeffery Silverstein and Cory Lawrence’s guitars, Kelly Laughlin’s commanding soul-gaze vocals, the sub-earth bass of Alex Jones and the blinding glow of Jake Winstanley’s keys.

    The debut record was recorded at Chris and Mickey Freeland’s Beat Babies Studio outside of Baltimore, and was mastered by Paul Gold at Salt Mastering. Art and design are by Chris Muccioli, and the limited vinyl is accompanied by a download code.

    Flooded by the squalls of Arbouretum, the interstellar hail of Celebration, the thunder and lightning of Wye Oak and the howling rage of Sri Aurobindo, Baltimore’s psychedelic downpour has been bountiful. Secret Mountains offer a new ark to voyage the cosmos, a heavy path that starts deep in the grooves of Rainer.
