Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band

Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band - Hurrah
Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band - Leaving Trails
Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band - The Roof

While the angularness of Modest Mouse or the lush softness of a band I never really gave a chance, Pink Floyd, can be heard in the crevices of Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band's second release, Where The Messengers Meet, something about this album is conjuring up the sense that it is a real ALBUM. It's a pretty lofty accomplishment considering MSHVB recorded this album after playing together for less than two years, and include amongst their membership a drummer who is only 15 years old.

Where The Messengers Meet will be released on August 3rd, courtesy of Dead Oceans
