Evening Fires - Blue Mountain Water US

"Blue Mountain Water" by Evening Fires Evening Fires' fourth release was originally planned for another label, but when it went belly-up we just had to give the album a rescue via Deep Water. In Fall 2007 a core trio version of the group took the sounds underground (literally – all tracks here were recorded in subterranean settings), exploring collective creation in mostly non-rock formats. The results are decidedly rustic (presented in genuine you-are-there-fi MONO-SONIC sound) and both outward- and inward-bound at the same time. From opiated acoustics to howling electronics to spacious tribal percussion explorations, Blue Mountain Water gives a window onto a spontaneous-shamanism side of the band not usually heard outside of the root cellars and mountain caverns of their northern Appalachian home. Five tracks, 45 minutes.

Recent Deep Water releases reviewed at Ptolemaic Terrascope Online

As a general rule, anything on Deep Water is almost guaranteed to be of excellent quality and well worth seeking out. On this latest batch of releases however, the label has surpassed its own high standards to produce a collection of releases that has been on heavy rotation in this particular corner of the globe. ...

H.H.

Originally released in limited runs of 33 copies (what chance do you have?), the two albums from Goner are fine collections of hypnotic psychedelic rock, featuring repetitive grooves, hypnotic rhythms and a seemingly pagan heart. ...

Sugar Head Record

Cut from darker matter, the album from Ashtray Navigations contains only three songs across its two discs, with disc one being taken up completely by the 58 minute drone/noise creation "Sugar Head Music With Sines", a feral dust cloud of sound that roams across its surroundings covering everything in beautiful ashes of noise. ...

New Worlds For Old

Containing just four long tracks, the first disc of "New Worlds For Old", is a magnificent, rambling beast that twists and writhes, soars and dives, filling the air with a cornucopia of instrumental sounds, the music alive with melody passion and promise. ...

Blue Mountain Water

Apparently recorded in various subterranean locations, whether caves or cellar it does not say, the five tracks on "Blue Mountain Water" were recorded live with no overdubs giving them a freshness, the musicians involved working together to create a collection of great beauty. ...

Blue Mountain Water reviewed at Foxy Digitalis

Another wide-ranging effort from Evening Fires, this time the trio of Kevin Moist, Nathaniel Rasmussen, and Ben Wentz, most of whom are actively involved in the Deep Water Acres website and label. Reportedly recorded in various subterranean locations with no post-production trickery, “Blue Mountain Water” indeed captures a mysterious, cavernous tone...
