Birthed in the mind of Utah transplant Jamie Timm, Microwave Mountain are certainly a buzzworthy local band that should be on your radar, if they’re not already. After playing in various touring bands, Jamie decided to grow out his hair and get a fresh start here in Music City, playing the music he wanted to play. He self-recorded all of his 2015 debut under the MM moniker, entitled Shades Up, using only a two track loop pedal and two past their prime guitar amps. With some guitars, a bass, one microphone, and a room in Nashville, he created some incredible psychedelic inspired, lo-fi garage rock that had us paying very close attention immediately. Over the last two years, the “studio” project has begun to blossom into so much more. Mr. Timm began recruiting others (Pat Boyer, Jakey Barnes, Brennan Lethbridge) to help him perform his material live, and show by show, through word of mouth, their reputation has grown to the point that we are thrilled to be helping them debut a brand new music video!
The track, “Electric Boogie,” is the perfect introduction to Microwave Mountain’s unique, blues flavored, stoner garage rock sound and, fittingly, the video reminds us of an episode of the classic MTV music video show Beavis and Butthead, with its ’90s inspired stop motion clip art. However, the added element of dank memes gives it that oh-so-right modern day spin, all courtesy of director VHS Vic. The track will appear on the band’s upcoming sophomore record, Sick Licks, set to be released on cassette via Cold Lunch Recordings next Friday (4/20, of course!). A record release show is set to take place at The Cobra on April 20 as well, with help from Gravity Thong, and H.A.R.D. Cover is only $5 or $10 with a cassette, while they last. So look for a reminder about the show next week, and be sure to click on after the jump for our exclusive premiere!
