Event description

Mount Trout play Franks Wild Years after releasing their second album Petrol Bush, with support from Punko.

Petrol Bush is a beguiling demonstration of existential songcraft and poetic folk/rock experimentation. For most tracks, Ainslie and Faigan help transport Brown's deep verses from simple beauty into confounding wonder - with unwieldy yet serene guitar and trance-state devotional drumkit. On others the session offers wider space for sonic wandering off and searching - stumbling to a place where firecrackers pop & stink, stars sparkle, near divinity. The recordings are warm, cooked on an open fire.

Trout have us recalling the intimacy and thoughtful tangled beauty of Dag's Benefits of Solitude, Cat Power's moon pix or Dirty Three live in a rainstorm. But at the end of the day, moonlight shining down on the swamp, they read to us from their own unique story book.
