Space Mountain is one-man bedroom phenom, Cole Kinsler out of Boston, MA. His latest release is Gargantua, an engaging and incredibly enjoyable lo-fi foray. It’s one part Crash Test Dummies, one part Wilco, one part Smog, a dash of Pavement, a pinch of Dinosaur Jr., and all Kinsler. He plays all of the instruments, which he recorded one at a time.
Kinsler recently started the label called Dust etc., which also doubles as a “an online space for creative folks to talk about art that has affected and inspired them.” Pay what you want for Gargantua and check out the rest of Space Mountain’s catalog on Bandcamp. I’ve had it on repeat for the past 24 hours, and I’m hooked. There’s no skipping tracks, no hiccups; it’s a complete album.
Here are some of my faves:
