The Cool Moonmist Mountain Band is the brainchild of Jared Sand from Seattle, WA who wrote, recorded and produced this trippy collection of songs that are heavily layered with synths and beats. The Fire Sign EP is a perfect follow up to his last recording, Live in Studio 11/14 showing off the fact that Jared has much more to offer by doing things on his own.
The sound is a mix of up-tempo trip-hop, ambient, and electronic that flows from track to track with a consistency and smoothness that really makes it feel like one idea, but not a one-note song. The dubby sound really makes the tracks have a fantastic effect that shows a real talent because there is no extended wanking and overlong songs, matter of fact, it’s almost too damn short and there needs to be more on here. All of the songs are great; especially last song “Let the Dust Settle.” Trippy, psychedelic and just amazing! So much going on that all flow and work together perfectly.
If you want something to put on and give your mood a jump start, this is the EP for you. So much to like on here and so much to look forward to in the future…such a great release.
