The Sky Drops

Making Mountains 12″ LP

Blue Marble Vinyl

The Sky Drops (Rob Montejo and Monika Bullette) expand their brand of shoegaze rock with their third release, Making Mountains. The first track, “Explain It To Me,” is an infectious romp in slithering fuzz, a la 60s Stones high on MBV. “Cut That Corner” and the hypnotic swagger of “Keeper” bring The Sky Drops’ trademark harmonies, explosive guitars and atmospherics to a Queens of the Stone Age sensibility. The fuzz subsides, and a swell of Loveless era guitars drives the catchy Latin sway of “Out The Window.” The last track is the unsettling acoustic beauty “Together-ing.”
