Album Notes
Trumpets in the Snow/Mystery Mountain is a duo formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 2008. Consisting of multi-instrumentalists Craig Rockwell and Mike Marks, the band was created solely as a studio project. The group’s album “Incantations” is a brief 28 minute recording consisting of multi-layered songs ranging in style from electronica, to more organic guitar/banjo driven numbers. "Incantations" was created with the intentions of being a beautiful space-out headphone album.

The band goes by the unwieldy moniker Trumpets in the Snow/Mystery Mountain. As they describe themselves on MySpace: "Formed by Craig Rockwell and Mike Marks during a blizzard. These are recordings we've been working on for the last year." Craig Rockwell and Mike Marks were members of the beloved, now defunct post-rock group To Be a High Powered Executive (I thought that was a long band name!) As a huge fan of TBaHPE, I was excited to hear what else these guys could come up with. This new project does not disappoint.

The sound of their album Incantations is an interesting amalgamation of genres. The band that I am most reminded of is the awesome Bell Orchestre, who are themselves kind of a cross between post-rock and chamber music. The horn parts are at times especially reminiscent of Bell Orchestre. Throw in some elements of indie folk and electronic music, and you've got Trumpets in the Snow. I also thought of Le Loup during some parts of the album. (I saw TBaHPE open for Le Loup once, and it was a great show.) I even got a Sufjan Stevens vibe on occasion. The way that Trumpets in the Snow seamlessly jump between musical styles over the brief 28-minute course of the album could be compared to Sufjan's brilliant You Are The Blood.cover, although not as dramatic as the latter.
