TRIFFID ALBUM OF THE WEEK: SUGAR MOUNTAIN BY JACK RIVER

July 4 – July 10

Jack River’s debut LP ‘Sugar Mountain’ is a phosphorescent album.

Featuring singles ‘Ballroom’, ‘Fault Line’ and ‘Fool’s Gold’, the record seems to glow with pop highs and spacey riffs, but come closer and you’ll glimpse the darkness in its depths.

“The first clue is in the title,” says Holly Rankin. ‘Sugar Mountain’ is named after Neil Young’s bittersweet ode to youth and the loss of innocence. As Rankin explains it, “It’s the souvenir of my youth, the wish of what it could have been.”
