Get Back is inspired by “Alleys, curbs, walls, and cigarette-stained gig flyers. An island on the Pacific coast. Fake British towns. Slayer posters. The beauty of youth. It’s about listening to ‘Driver’s Seat’ and ‘Guns of Brixton’ and hotboxing The Duster.”
Get Back features quite possibly the filthiest song in the Jagjaguwar catalog. “North Hollywood Microwaves” is a catchy, chugging anthem with screaming sax solos and rapping by Annie Hardy (Giant Drag), known for her black humor and David Lee Roth-level stage presence.
Get Back will be released on April 29th (28th in Europe)
Los Angeles brought its finest talent into the Pink Mountaintops orbit, so in addition to Annie Hardy and the great J Mascis, Get Back features Rob Barbato (Darker My Love, The Fall, Cass McCombs), Steve Kille (Dead Meadow), Daniel Allaire (Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Gregg Foreman (Cat Power, Delta 72).
Randal Dunn (SunnO))), Earth, SunCity Girls, Boris) mixed Get Back at Avast! Studios (Bikini Kill, Mudhoney, Christ On A Crutch, Soundgarden) in Seattle. Howie Weinburg (Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Danzig, Ramones, Slayer) mastered it in Laurel Canyon.
Pink Mountaintops will tour starting next week with Band of Horses and will end the dates with Marissa Nadler in LA and SF. More unannounced tour dates and festival appearances are on the way.
