Mountains

The NYC duo called Mountains started around the Art Institute of Chicago and have been on the respected Thrill Jockey label from the start. They specialize in long-form, textural ambient musics of the instrumental variety, using processed and unprocessed analog instruments and no beats, sort of a hybrid Fennesz and Eno. Everybody loves them and their latest album Centralia has received consistently high reviews from the big boy reviewers: the Wire called them something something “infinite sheets of grainy sound.”
