Published May 06, 2019Following a string of recent song drops, Calgary's 36? are gearing up for a fast-approaching new album. Titled Milk Mountain, the full-length arrives on May 10 via File Under: Music. And while that release date is a few days out, you can stream the entire album now.
For the unfamiliar, 36? comes at the hands of project mastermind Taylor Cochrane, who teamed up with producer/engineer Graham Lessard (Stars, Kevin Drew, Timber Timbre) to create Milk Mountain at the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity.
A press release describes the album like this:
The resulting take on Cochrane's experimental indie/alt/art rock and pop range from post-heartbreak odes to MGMT-esque radio rockers forged from a sonic palette that includes guitars, synths, and a couple of power tools. What could have been chaos is instead a precision piece trying to capture the truest version of the complex feelings Cochrane has experienced through his struggles with mental health and self realization.
Down below, you can hear how that actually all plays out for yourself.
To go along with the new album, 36? have lined up a North American tour, which just kicked off over the weekend. You can see all the upcoming dates below.
