“Babble” single (2019)
Pratfall — a fall often used (esp. of clowns) for comedic effect.
INDIE ROCK // GARAGE FOLK
// HIPPIE CRIPPLER
“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.”
