Michigan Post-Rock Band Man Mountain Signs To Spartan Records, Debut Full-Length ("Infinity Mirror") Out March 16, 2018


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Detroit, Michigan post-rock 4-piece Man Mountain has signed with Spartan Records and has announced plans to release their debut full-length, "Infinity Mirror," on March 16th. The album was mastered by Mike Kalajian (Circa Survive, Prawn, Moving Mountains). A new song titled "Memory Trace" is debuting today on Top40-Charts.com:



"Infinty Mirror" is available for pre-order here. All pre-orders come with and instant download of "Memory Trace," as well as a free copy of the band's debut EP, "To Call Each Thing By Its Right Name," which has been re-mastered and updated with new artwork. The re-release is also available on all streaming services in addition to being made available for Name Your Own Price at spartanrecords.com and Bandcamp.

Man Mountain is a band of brothers and friends from the southeast corner of Michigan, playing epic and emotive instrumental rock music. What started in the beginning of 2012 as two people jamming songs by The Appleseed Cast in a basement, turned into four people playing a full set of original songs in someone else's basement later that summer. That first set of music was later polished up, recorded, and released in the spring of the following year as an EP titled "To Call Each Thing By Its Right Name". Since then the band has played all over Michigan (and neighboring states), and has written and recorded their first full length record, "Infinity Mirror" which will be released by Spartan Records this spring.

About Man Mountain:
There is power in the repetition. When stretched across an infinite plane, even the smallest elements become transformatively integrated into the greater picture. Tones to spectrums. Feathers to flight. Molecules to mountains.

Spartan Records proudly welcomes Man Mountain to the family — a melodic, instrumental post-rock outfit from Southeast Michigan. In the honorable lineage of bands like The Appleseed Cast, Sigur Ros, and American Football, Man Mountain's debut record Infinity Mirror is a journey of emotive dynamics set against a swirling dreamlike ferocity.

"With Infinity Mirror, we wanted to capture the sonic intensity of our live set," says guitarist Mike Reaume, "that feeling when everything kicks in and your are entirely immersed in the sound." Song by song, the album progresses with an intentionality that allows delicate melodies, motifs, and nuances to build into quaking full-band aggression. "We didn't want any two songs to sound like different versions of the same idea," says Reaume, describing the albums play between fragmentation and cohesion. "We wanted each song to explore a different facet of musical influence for us both individually and collectively."

Intentionally avoiding a traditional studio recording path, Infinity Mirror was tracked in a variety of unconventional locations. With ultimate attention paid to sonic integrity, gear selection, and reckless experimentation, the record took shape over the course of many months. "The overall tonality of Infinity Mirror is much different from anything we've done before," says Reaume. "The clean tones are much more pristine and shimmering, and the heavy bass parts just get amazingly filthy." Once tracking and mixing were complete, final mastering details were handled by Mike Kalajian (Circa Survive, Prawn, Moving Mountains).

Thematically, the album presents a constant duality. Aptly titled Infinity Mirror, it is hard to ignore the unending and cycling conflict associated with any type of prolonged reflection. Sonically translated, this pondering plays as understated notes and moments reverberating into upheaval and dissonance. While the catalyst for much of this direction can be traced to the internal, the band also acknowledges the influential power of their surrounding physical environment. "Michigan is a beautiful state that really inspires a sense of adventure and exploration," says Reaume. "It also can be somber and brutal in the winter. I think that definitely can be heard in the contrasting vibe of a lot of the songs we write. Even the way the album flows is from more upbeat 'summer' songs to more melancholic 'winter' songs — like the cycle of the seasons."
Infinite repetition. Cyclical patterns. Internal reflection of the external. Examination of self. Come experience Infinity Mirror March 16th on Spartan Records.
