I'd never heard of Speck Mountain before Friday. Even yet, I'm still trying to get the image of a huge pile of thin Italian ham out of my mind. But that aside, I'm impressed. The track that made its way to me is Backslide, a b-side to their forthcoming Blood is Clean 7 inch single. The beauty is in the simplicity. A minimum of synth notes, a sparse backbeat and a simple little guitar line. That's it. It's lovely in a retro-spacey way and whets my appetite for more psychedelic Speck Mountain sounds.
