Quest for Fire

Black Mountain came together organically vocalist Amber Webber was borrowed from another outfit and recruited for a 2003 tour, Jeremy Schmidt, Wells' downstairs roommate, was assimilated based on the strength of his "solo synth-scape/space rock," which according to Wells, "blew their minds" and churned out a handful of striking lo-fi recordings. In 2005, on the strength of those tracks, Black Mountain signed to Jagjaguwar and released its acclaimed eponymous debut. "The band was really just being born during the making of the first record," Schmidt says. A follow-up, "In the Future," arrived to critical adulation and copious Devil-horning in early 2008. "Wilderness Heart," their latest record, is packed with succinct rock songs that pulse and pound with startling precision: it pummels you, you ask for more. "Wilderness Heart" is arguably Black Mountain's tightest, most concentrated outing, but there's still plenty of raw rock energy at work.
