Their Name Is Actually a Reference to This Book, Though You'd Really Never Guess from the Music

Let's get right to this one: Speck Mountain are from Chicago (though they got started here), and you will like them, if you like ambient-sorta space rock with husky vocals and a bluesy undertow. Imagine your favorite psychedelic band doing the Staple Singers. (Or, you know, Spiritualized.) They are soothing on your headphones and almost a bit heroic live.

See them tonight, at Cake Shop, or on Thursday, at D.I.Y. Bushwick venue Vanishing Point. Download their Daytrotter Session. Tattoo their name on the sole of your foot, so no one knows it's there except you.
