Mountains - Air Museum Though Koen Holtkamp and Brandon Anderegg began Mountains combining extended drone textures with lone-porch guitar picking, the duo have spent the last several years slowly evolving into more fluid, long-form kosmische ventures. By the time they'd fled their own label, Apestaartje, for Chicago's off-the-beaten stalwart Thrill Jockey in 2009, Mountains was far more indebted to the space-synth ends of '70s German experimental music than the ambient zone-outs with which they'd begun their career. The result is perhaps the duo's simplest and most sonically spiritual album to date.
On Air Museum, they have created so much space that their stillness becomes almost a mockery of ambient drone music. Or consider a donation?
Mountains – Air Museum. on May 18, 2011, 7:59am. It’s the combination of soaring drones and bubbling, almost unheard sounds, that makes you feel, as with Deckard’s . in 2019, that the album explores the voice of a city of people who can’t quite speak, and with the poignant Newsprint and rumbling Sequel in particular, Mountains have excelled; if you had to split the album up, these would. be the takeaway tracks. Really, though, it’d be better to describe Air Museum as one long experiment that’s divided into several movements; its strongest tracks are stronger in context than out of context.
But this album perhaps best shows the duo able to capture the sense of drone as exaltation, something derived from the choice of instruments used, whether old keyboards, guitars, effects pedals, or further combinations and extrapolations as desired.
Air Museum blurs the lines between acoustic and electronic music even more without sacrificing melody or the delicacy of their sound. It is an album of firsts. It was the first album that the acoustic instruments were not processed via a computer. Instead, the processing of the instrumentation (acoustic and electric guitar, cello, accordion, piano, bass et. was done using a variety of pedals, modular synths, and other analog techniques.
Air Museum is proof positive that Mountains has no interest in stagnating, yet this does not mean it is necessarily a step forward. Despite the fact Mountains took a new approach to the recording of the instruments, Air Museum is possibly the most electronic focused album in the band’s catalog. Sequel starts with pulsating electronics, utilizing the acoustic instruments as subtle accents. It pays off, showing that Anderegg and Holtkamp can adeptly integrate both natural and processed elements without it feeling misplaced.
