Philadelphia discovers Baltimore’s Secret Mountains

The Baltimore band Secret Mountains recently released its new EP, Rejoice, which was recorded earlier this year in Philly at Mad Dragon Studios by Chris Baglivio and Dangerous Ponies guitarist Evan Bernard. Available on a limited cassette run (and digitally), the three-song EP is the band’s second release, and its first on Baltimore’s Friends Records. The title track is moody, psychedelic, and filled with dynamic shifts in electrified sound; the band’s greatest strength, however, is in the vocals from Kelly Laughlin. The band brings its stormy atmospherics to the El Bar in Fishtown on Friday, Sept. 24th, as part
of the Philly F/M Festival.
