- Badwater by Speck Mountain
8/10 Ian Staff review, 24 January 2013
The third release for Chicagoans Speck Mountain isn’t that dissimilar to their other two albums to be honest but that’s not such a bad thing really, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, with some nice plush mixing from the mighty John McEntire, the sultry voice of singer Marie-Claire Balabanian sounds lovely right up front where it belongs!
It has a very blues like feel to it almost as if they’ve carried on from where Mazzy Star left off a few years back, I’ve always heard words like ‘space rock’ when describing Speck Mountain’s music but it’s a lot more than that, ‘Badwater’ has a ‘Paris Texas’ loneliness feel and ‘Live It Down’ is like ‘A Storm In Heaven’-era Verve!
If you’re partial to bands like Mojave 3 and maybe even Exit Calm then this is just the thing for you, it’s all deserts and cadillacs and drinking whiskey on horseback, it’s good late night stuff!
