The Canadian slogaze quartet Mount Mural released their début EP There Is a Better Place today.
A four track release (available on bandcamp) of softly pressed songs that mind of ambient uplighting as it fills the room with gently swaying compositions that rest easily on the ears. though, far from being background noise at a shopping precinct. The quartet are able to create music that seeps in to the marrow of the listener with its luxurious warming texturing.
Despite, or perhaps because of, the calm focus of the music these are a quartet who are fast out of the starting blocks, having only really got themselves going in the past couple of months, already have the EP, my pick of which is the opener The Greenest Compass, along with securing live performance slots.
