Speck Mountain

The dreamy soundscapes of Speck Mountain first took shape in Brooklyn, NY, where founding members Karl Briedrick (guitar) and Marie-Claire Balabanian (vocals, bass) held their first rehearsals in 2005. Evoking the vocals of Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval and the lush orchestrations of space rock, the band honed its sound while playing with temporary member Jackie Ciliberti (organ/electric piano). Ciliberti was later replaced by multi-instrumentalist Kate Walsh, and the trio relocated to Chicago. Summer Above, Speck Mountain's self-produced debut, was released in 2006 by Burnt Brown Sounds, a Chicago-based label run by Briedrick and Balabanian. Although the co-leaders continued to run the label, Speck Mountain soon signed a deal with Carrot Top Records, which issued the engaging follow-up effort Some Sweet Relief in March 2009. ~ Andrew Leahey

I love the album cover. It is as if Edward Hopper took photographs

I've been glued to their station for a surprisingly long time. They've been one of my loves of the past couple of years and a companion through intense, worrying college that had a similar effect on me to an intense romantic relationship . I discovered something profound in an obscure, tranquil place, like a house that backs onto wilderness.

On one side there's the jet set living large and fast on the other side there's the broke existing on borrowed time and smack dab in the middle is Speck Mountain that seems to see all through their music. Play on.... play proud. Sincerely BRENT.

I love "Speck Mountain" and very much look forward to the new release. When the town is asleep on a rainy night is my favorite time to listen.

Sound a lot like Mazzy Star without the richness of Hope Sandoval's voice.

Sound a lot like Mazzy Star with a county singer.

A richly textured song from the back country. Slow and deliberate with intention.

That little humming/soft screaming she does reminds me of the scream in that one Pink Floyd song...

Truly impeccable.

@jinsideob This is Speck Mountain's page, not Mazzy Star's.

Hope, your blues are blissful despite your pain...Hope Springs Eternal from all the bands you have graced. Yes Hope IS the soul of all past and Hopefully future tunes :-)

Twinlines is another good one from SM. Mazzy Radio is paying off with this find.
