Pink Mountaintops 

Get Back (Jagjaguwar)

Was 1987 really "The Second Summer of Love" and does it deserve a resounding homage? "Dropout girls smoking Export A's?" Really? Pink Mountaintops assembles its own war stories from the suburban teen experience. Surging hormones live again as reverb. There is so much echo on Get Back, it is the lasting impression to the point of annoyance. "North Hollywood Microwave" is one spot of relief, evoking the B-52s  with frantic vocal rhythm and anarchic sax. The BC band began as a spinoff from Black Mountain and wants to be as jaded about rock as Mott the Hoople was 40 years ago. It might work with more cowbell.
