Children having their fun with the blues

Black and white Mountain
When I interviewed Stephen McBean of Black Mountain for Exclaim! back in the spring, he name-dropped a new tune called “The Hair Song.” Now, the song has been released as the new single from the upcoming Wilderness Heart, due out in Canada on September 14 via Outside Music. It’s a bluesy sourthern rocker, as McBean and Amber Webber trade off on lead vocals over acoustic strums and whiskey-soaked slide riffs. It’s a catchy tune, and is more straightforward than anything the band has released since 2005′s self-titled debut.
