Mountain Cult makes lo-fi noise. Driven by minimal drums, lead bass and hypnotic guitar, the songs are often on the verge of falling apart.

Biography

Mountain Cult was formed in early 2011 in Brooklyn, NY. Influenced by the The Birthday Party, Iggy Pop, 13th Floor Elevators and other 60s psychedelic bands, the band's sound is minimal and raw. The lead bass is striking against the ethereal guitar. The drumming hails to the Mo Tucker standing style of drumming, notable for the distinct lack of cymbals and bass drum. The recordings were all done on a 4-track cassette.
