Mountebank

Another filthy Austin band cashing in our drink tokens and falling in love all too quickly.

Pratfall — a fall often used (esp. of clowns) for comedic effect.


“As soon as you get the chance, take a moment to don your headphones and totally soak in the melodical waves of Mountebank‘s 2018 release, Pratfall. Astrological chart reference, for whatever it’s worth: Borne on an Elliott Smith cusp, with a moon rising in Cat Stevens/Tea for the Tillerman winsome pop. You’re enveloped by something poignant and equal parts elated taking a flying leap, while shredding and pounding out trippy folk-rock hues. These are the cakes on the tea menu. Order in abundance.”

Laurie Gallardo, KUTX Austin Music Minute
