Big Rock Candy Mountain

Big Rock Candy Mountain

 New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

"Is it too early to call this the post Dirty Projectors era? If so, Big Rock Candy Mountain carries the curious dischordant harmonies to its own world of alternating power riffs and introspective blank spaces. This is certainly not simple music."

- IndieFeed


Big Rock Candy Mountain… a song about the sweeter things in life for the down and out. The concept that a land filled with your uttermost desires is paradise.

Big Rock Candy Mountain...a band that takes this concept and translates it into their own paradise of fuzzy guitars, square-waved keyboards, cavity inducing harmonies, distorted bass-lines, and four on the floor drum beats. Creating the foundation of what they consider fun, euphoric, and loud, BRCM’s goal is to share this utopia to the masses.

Their debut record, "Hey Kid", was released in September 2009, and has been well received by fans and media across the country. Big Rock Candy Mountain continues to tour the West Coast, East Coast, and Gulf Coast and is currently in the studio working on their second record.

Previously, their track "Rocketship" has been licensed for the soundtracks for the NBA2K11 and NHL2K11 video games. They are also secret celebrity characters in NBA2K11.
