This track from Nevada City, California-based collective, Golden Shoulders, comes from their months-old album, Get Reasonable. Among the ‘70s garage rock revival-revival and Jethro Tullian dynamic shifts on “Mountain” are some iffy lyrics: “You climb the mountain ‘cause it’s there / get a new mountain and get reasonable / you play the part so well.” The song is full of these you-me, push-pull moments, from some obnoxious perspective of authority, and fails to capitalize on a swelling, auspicious opening by the time it’s over.

The time spent listening for the fleeting moments of greatness on this disc might better be spent returning to Golden Shoulders' earlier Let My Burden Be.
