Mountain' (LYF)

Go Tell Fire to the 
Mountain
Critical Mass
Release Date: June 21, 2011
Label: LYF

by Eric Harvey

The hype-engineering? little shits in WU LYF ?have shrouded themselves in a cryptic marketing campaign of revolutionary swag, and on the Manchester quartet's first album, frontman Ellery Roberts shreds his vocal cords trying to stir us to action. Amid a haze of pipe organ,?guitar shimmer, and militaristic drumming, Roberts evangelizes like he's shouting off a cliff after a wake; or on "We Bros," like he's chanting feverishly at the pub. There is no political end game, and that's part of the appeal: These anthems could double ?as the desperate cries ?of boys fighting off the onset of adulthood.
