British Columbia-based psychedelics Black Mountain had quite a successful 2008. On top of a guest appearance on Conan O'Brien and a tour with Bon Iver, the band received a hefty critical nod; their Jagjaguwar-released In the Future was shortlisted for Canada's Polaris Prize for the best full-length album based on artistic merit.
The new year sees Black Mountain teaming up with fellow shaggy
Canadian band, The Sadies (who are also soon to release a country record with John Doe), for a West coast tour. They'll be winding down
the coast in March, following Black Mountain's stint in Australia.
