With a band name like Mountains and Rainbows, you would assume that they would make some cutesy synth-pop, or maybe some piano-driven indie-rcok, but if you made that assumption without listening to this album then you would be as incredibly surprised as I was, my friend. This album takes influence of punk rock and classic rock greats and transforms it into a contemporary sound that feels both familiar yet new. This album does has some weirdness, but overall it is a bunch of buddies providing backyard freaky jams with the ecstasy of a midwestern Summer.
