Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band hits Empty Bottle

Both albums by Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band were savaged in Pitchfork reviews. Listening to Where the Messengers Meet, the latest release from this Seattle band, I can’t say that the latest review (and a lowly 3.3 rating) is deserved. Sure, it’s an overwrought sound in stretches and the album overall is uneven but there are high points,  including the songs At Night, Messengers and Hurrah. The band, which may appeal to fans of Grizzly Bear or Dirty Projectors, plays the Empty Bottle tonight.
