Amoeba Review

After an eight-year hiatus, Stephen McBean (Black Mountain) is back with new music from his project Pink Mountaintops. The songs that would become Peacock Pools materialized in the early days of the pandemic, fomented from McBean’s eclectic interests (Camille Paglia essays, David Cronenberg flicks, early Pink Floyd) and brought to life by a star-studded stable of indie world musicians who also sought sonic collaboration. With contributions from artists who’ve worked with Destroyer, Death Valley Girls, Ty Segall, and more, the album has a varied, interesting vibe—everyone here is powered by passion and ready to experiment. The album opens with a cover of Black Flag’s “Nervous Breakdown” before heading into a tribute to the Swell Maps’ Nikki Sudden. Along the way, Steven McDonald of Redd Kross and Dale Crover of Melvins show up to participate in the cosmic proceedings. Trippy and tremendously fun.
