Speck Mountain Returns With New Sound

Speck Mountain
Wednesday, April 4th at Empty Bottle w/ Keep Shelly In Athens and Jonquil

After three years, Chicago favorites Speck Mountain have finished recording their new album Badwater and have begun sharing their new work at monthly live shows. In both instrumentation and vibe, Badwater's sound is different than their previous two albums, swarming with analog synths and guitar solos. As opposed to their previous method, which consisted of duo Karl Briedrick and Marie-Claire Balabanian writing the songs exclusively and bringing in musicians for recording and live shows, Badwater was prepared for and recorded with a full band, which lends itself to a more energetic and rhythmic sound. Speck Mountain's current band includes mainstays Karl Briedrick and Marie-Claire Balabanian, ex-Chin Up Chin Up drummer Chris Dye, and former Cleveland church organist, Linda Malonis.

Badwater will be released in the fall via Carrot Top Records. Don't miss the chance to hear songs off the album on Wednesday, April 4th at the Empty Bottle with Keep Shelly In Athens and Jonquil.
