Cette semaine est sorti The Reverb Conspiracy vol. II, seconde compilation sélectionnée avec soin par The Reverberation Appreciation Society, la joyeuse bande derrière l'Austin Psych Fest. Comme avec le premier volume, la volonté est de faire connaître aux Américains - et aux autres - des groupes prometteurs issus de la scène rock psychédélique européenne. Autrement dit, montrer à ces vieux Texans et Californiens qu'en Europe aussi, on sait faire de la "musique à effets wha-wha qui hypnotise".

C'est ainsi qu'on avait pu dénicher les Anglais The KVB, les Islandais Singapore Sling ou encore les Français Wall Of Death sur le premier volume sorti il y un an. Place désormais au second volume, donc, sur lequel on découvre avec plaisir le groupe londonien Desert Mountain Tribe. Le jeune trio, formé il y a quelques mois à peine et dont on ne sait pas grand chose mis à part que leur premier EP a été masterisé par Brett Orrison (ingé son des Black Angels et Wall Of Death), nous emballe rapidement avec son morceau "Coming Down". Ballades psychédéliques efficaces et clips tripés : telles semblent être les marques de fabrique de Desert Mountain Tribe, dont on attend la suite avec impatience. - Dimarocks


Desert Mountain Tribe, with Coming Down, is just a beautifully written piece of work. I adore this song so very much. Pattering of tears off the guitar strings. It’s flow, it’s movement, it’s feeling will send shivers down your spine. It creates amazing and vivid images in my mind, and takes me on a journey like no other. Giobia, with their song Orange Camel, mix a good amount of interesting sounds. It’s a full on layered extravaganza. With percussion, guitar, keyboard and vocals all over, it’s separation will having you grabbing for air. - Levitation

Bio

Emerging late in 2012 out of the ever-relevant cultural undergrowth of London town itself, Desert Mountain Tribe is a threefold onslaught of psychedelic rock heart and soul.

Arguably a genre which has noted a massive depletion in prominence within recent years, if not decades, the psych-blood flows strong still in the veins of founding members Jonty Balls (Guitar/Vocals) and brothers Philipp (Bass) and Felix (Drums) Jahn.

With the brothers having cut their teeth side by side throughout their formative years, playing together in a multitude of ensembles from a very young age, here and now in 2013 they constitute one of the more formidable emerging rhythm sections currently active on the United Kingdom’s club circuit.

Recording their début EP, an effort committed to tape in the trip-worthy surroundings of Shaken Oak Farm in Oxfordshire and subsequently mastered by none other Brett Orrison of The Black Angels, early in 2013- the result is a confident leap into genre-significance, with the bands time on the road since the disks release surely acting to supplement their new-found place.

In the year they have been active, Desert Mountain Tribe have shared the stage with the likes of Damo Suzuki¸ The Cult of Dom Keller, The Lucid Dream, Wall of Death and The Telescopes. Make no mistake; this is a group intent on making its mark within a long-lost area of British rock music.

With early standout track ‘Coming Down’ features on Reverb Conspiracy’s latest compilation offering (a release that was in-turn double-headed by the equally legendary imprints Fuzz Club Records and Austin Psych Fest), and separately releases this October via Greek label Sonic Playground.

A year into what has already proven itself to be an inter-sensual, mind-bending odyssey, Desert Mountain Tribe are currently making preparations for their eagerly awaited and as-of-yet untitled début album, whilst continuing to lap our tiny island nation in a string of sonic live performances.
