Welcome Man Mountain to the Spartan Family! Debut Album "Infinity Mirror" Out March 16th
Spartan Records proudly welcomes Man Mountain to the family — a melodic, instrumental post-rock outfit from Southeast Michigan. In the honorable lineage of bands like The Appleseed Cast, Sigur Ros, and American Football, Man Mountain's debut record Infinity Mirror is a journey of emotive dynamics set against a swirling dreamlike ferocity. Song by song, the album progresses with an intentionality that allows delicate melodies, motifs, and nuances to build into quaking full-band aggression. Thematically, the album presents a constant duality. Aptly titled Infinity Mirror, it is hard to ignore the unending and cycling conflict associated with any type of prolonged reflection. Sonically translated, this pondering plays as understated notes and moments reverberating into upheaval and dissonance. Listen to the premiere of the new song "Memory Trace" at Arctic Drones here.
Infinty Mirror will be released on March 16th and is available for pre-order now on limited edition 180 gram vinyl here. All pre-orders include an instant download of “Memory Trace," as well as a free download of the band's debut EP, To Call Each Thing By Its Right Name, which has been remastered and re-released with new artwork. The EP is also available on all streaming services in addition to being available for "Name Your Own Price" at the Spartan store and Bandcamp.
