ABOUT MOUNT PRESSMORE:
Mount Pressmore makes music that crosses cultures and transcends categories. As KUTX described their previous album, Enjoy (2013), “It’s virtuosic, but it feels familiar.” It’s Herbie Hancock meeting Peter Gabriel in a Danny Elfman film score. It’s a comedy, for sure, but one that balances social satire with self examination.
ABOUT THE MASKED BATTLE:
Emerging five years into the band's life span, The Masked Battle displays Mount Pressmore's deep chemistry, inveterate searching, and visceral style. As lead singer
Thomas Shaw describes the record, "[It] removes a beating heart from its ribcage, stomps on it in compound time, and folds the remains into a sonic tapestry of alienation and anxiety."
