ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
mt.st.helens third album, "Of Others", offers a more refined and concise version of their compelling, guitar driven sound. Having cut their teeth in the early part of the 21st century in Chicago at the Fireside Bowl, Empty Bottle, Schubas, Metro and Bottom Lounge (and many stateside tours); mt.st.helens have stuck it out and cultivated a small but devoted following.

"Of Others" draws from influences as diverse as Unwound, Shudder to Think, Ride and Boards of Canada but the result is far from derivative. Guitar player Michael Sprague has constructed a cadre of masterfully spare guitar leads that are at once striking and hypnotic. Guitarist / vocalist Quinn Goodwillie's (of acclaimed local group Sleep Out) powerful voice has increased in range and fortitude and is greatly bolstered by the stalwart rhythm section of Jason Sprague (Bass) and Ben Geier (drums).

After the demise of their beloved former home, Divot Records (Haymarket Riot, Sweep The Leg Johnny, Braid), msh have signed on with Chicago's Two Thumbs Down Records, home of Driftless Pony Club, May or May Not and Dialogue. TTD will release "Of Others" in August of this year. Former member Matt Fast, of local group Rollo Tomasi, will be re-joining the band this year and handling third guitar, keyboard and percussion duties.

Press:

Chicago Tribune - 01/11/07: On the Town, concert pick - "Like a jam band for the ADD generation, this local group shreds something fierce, serving up a constantly undulating rock 'n' roll groove."

Pitchfork - "Mt. St. Helens craft convincing, explosive guitar-driven rock that only gets better with increased volume"

Allmusic.com - “With the arrangements of distorted guitars and throaty bellows provided by vocalist Quinn Goodwillie, mt.st.helens are rare as a band who successfully pull off a sound that's both experimental and catchy at the same time. They stay focused as musicians who just want to rock out without taking themselves too seriously as "artists."

Lost At Sea - "Close your eyes and imagine that you have just found yourself riding a train with a brain full of psychedelics and in the background over the sound of the tracks all you can hear is a blurred loop of 1950's department store music. During the first track of You Are a Ghostly Presence, lasting all of twenty seconds, this will be your experience. However, when that twentieth second drops you had better be ready because Mt. St. Helens has already erupted onto the scene (no pun intended) and turned your confused but sustainable train ride into an all-adrenalin pumping free ride. "
