In the first edition of RNDTBL, Jess, Aaron and Jason have a listen to Black Mountain's "The Hair Song":
JESS SAYS: Black Mountain's "The Hair Song" is normally something that I would totally dig. It has a major hipster vibe and the video looks like it was shot in one of my favourite places to discover new music, Guelph.
However, this band and this song is mediocre at best. I feel like I've heard this sound many times before, just done much better by countless other bands in the 90s. To Black Mountain, I say, try something a tad more original.
AARON SAYS: It's about time we had another band like Lnyard Skynard back in industry and here they are. "The Hair Song" is I'm assuming a single from their latest album and although this writer does not particularly like this song, the sound itself is amazing. The influence and maturity of this group is something I'd like to investigate further. I would recommend these guys to any fans of good soulful rock music.
Strong roots guys, I give you a 4 of 5 with a definite 5 of 5 for interest.
JASON SAYS: I like this tune. I dig the dual vocals. That said, we’ve heard this sound before. Countless times. I feel like I shouldn’t like it as much as I do. There isn’t much original about it, but somehow it just works. It’s just a fun, catchy rock song that I could easily see making a home on a station like Indie 103.1, or even KROQ. I think this Canadian band is headed for success, I’m just not sure that they’re something special.
