Championed by Neil Young, with whom the band has toured, and garnering favorable comparisons to My Morning Jacket and Wilco, Everest is currently on tour with Minus the Bear in support of On Approach. Following this run, the band will make an appearance at this year’s Bonnaroo festival June 13, then visit KCRW on June 16 for a live “Morning Becomes Eclectic” session.
Everest’s impassioned new album recalls the era of vinyl, when the story starts at track one and doesn’t end until the very last note wanes. It’s not a vintage sound, but a significant statement of a new era of American rock ‘n’ roll, seeped in rustic grooves, infectious melodies and timelessness.
Borrowing from their home base surroundings, California makes an imprint on their sonic landscape, much like how Motown oozed Detroit and Stax screamed Memphis, the Golden State shines through unmistakably.
