A Mountain Of One – Hail Pleasure

Written by Daniel Clarke on January 21, 2010

Bold, epic, and otherworldly, London’s A Mountain Of One present their intoxicating debut album, ‘Institute Of Joy’, this 30th January on Pod Records (UNKLE, David Byrne & Brian Eno).

A hypnotizing blend of psychedelic rock, drifting synths, drowsy disco, and heady soul, ‘Institute Of Joy’ is already being hailed as one of the most epoch-defining British debuts since Portishead or Tricky.

Following 2008’s acclaimed ‘Collected Works’ CD compilation, A Mountain Of One have garnered comparisons to everyone from a drugged out Fleetwood Mac, to Pink Floyd, Arthur Russell, Laurel Canyon, Air, JJ Cale, Talk Talk, Santana, Madchester, Beta Band and The Verve.
