Hail to the Teeth

The music of Teeth Mountain. It doesn’t belong here. On Planet Earth. Or in the Milky Way. No, the eight-piece ensemble must be posting up and composing on some Coast to Coast-like netherworld before traveling to some pod in Baltimore (their so-called home base… we’re not buying it) and scaring the poo out of us in a good way. Take, for example, the tune “Keinsein,” a vocal-less Middle Eastern techno dirge through the cosmos, complete with bawling synths and multiple drum kits. On paper, it sounds like a hot mess. But after a while, the complexities break down and turn into one awesome and digestible listening experience.
