Red Mountains – Slow Wander


Red Mountains – Slow Wander
All Good Clean Records – 2017
Rock, Stoner, Psych, Doom
Rated: ****

The honorable Charlie Tooth wrote about their debut album Down With The Sun back in 2015. And now, two years later, when September rolls around, the Norwegian Red Mountains are back with a new release called Slow Wander. And it is a majestic slow, yet urgent, trek across the highlands. Across a mountainous terrain that moves the soul and inspires the spirit at every turn. Produced by Spidergawd’s Per Borton, who also delivers guest vocals on the Acid Wedding track, the album definitely shines in all its psychedelic goodness and moves into a slightly darker realm without ever becoming oppressive. It actually sounds extremely wide in its vistas and with so much room for all the instruments and voice to excel. And that is really what they do best, that wonderful translation sensation an open expanse into heavy psychedelic rock and making it weave through your head and heart. Man, I want to go back to Norway again and cruise the Atlantic Road with this album at exactly the right volume…
