MT. ST. HELENS VIETNAM BAND GETS PROPS FROM AV CLUB

AV Club
Local up-and-comers The Mt. St. Helens Vietnam band got a great review from everyone’s favorite website The AV Club. Garnering comparisons to Pink Floyd, the Arcade Fire, Cursive and Trail of Dead, the review says their sophomore album Where the Messengers Meet has “unexpected edge” and points to “Bitter Cold,” a heaving dirge that finds Benjamin Verdoes and his wife Traci Eggleston unraveling a cheerless narrative of madness and abandonment over a tempo set by their 15-year-old adopted son, Marshall. Along the way, over the course of Messengers, swooning cellos, spiky guitars, math-rock drum configurations, and even the occasional banjo enhance the drama.” To read the full review, follow the link.
