Do the bands Deerhoof, Man Man, Peter Bjorn and John, or Of Montreal ring any bells? Connecticut natives Mt. Bearington has opened for all of them in their two-year reigh over the local scene, impressing with most recent release Love Buttons. They've toured the country including a small SXSW show but have recently been sticking to their area with gigs in Bridgeport, Hartford, New London, and Meriden, with a Hamden date coming up at the Outer Space on September 7th. A dreamy, shoegaze-y sound that jumps out especially in tracks like "Here's Your Mood Ring, Honey" and "Pictures", Mt. Bearington channel some hippie vibes and garage fuzz to create the sound that's going to make them big.
