Moving Mountains biography
MOVING MOUNTAINS is a post rock/alternative band from New York formed in by Gregory Dunn (guitar, vocals) and Nicholas Pizzolato (drums). Soon after their self titled demo was released in early 2006 and later in 2007 they self-released their debut LP "Pneuma". Later in 2007 the lineup was completed with the addition of Frank Graniero (guitar, vocals) and Mitchell Lee (bass) and in 2008 a reissued version "Pneuma" was released by Deep Elm Records.

Their music is a narrow mix of post rock and emo vocals with alternative edge and rarely touching math rock ground and thus creating a very particular sound.

Review by TCat
Prog Reviewer

— First review of this album —
4 stars Moving Mountains is a Post-rock band with emo vocals. This is a 4-track E.P. which works well to introduce their music to those who wish to listen. As far as the vocals, they vary from soft mellow tones to harsh screaming and everywhere in between. The vocals, however, are not overly used. The main focus in this E.P. is the crescendo and decrescendo that is a usual formula for post rock. However, the instruments are artfully done, so if you have an adverse reaction to emo vocals yet you are a post rock fan, you should not avoid this band.

I am not much of an emo fan, but I do appreciate good post rock especially when it varies from the norm. There is some variance here, so that is a good thing. The first track is the title track and it establishes the sound that is prevalent in this album. The dynamics however are not always a slow build up, but sometimes it can be instant, The emotional singing when it does come in is not overly obnoxious either, so that is a plus. The 2nd track called "With One's Heart in One's Mouth" is actually an improvement. There are some tricky rhythms throughout and the build-up is quick and emotional. The vocals here are somewhat abrasive though as it approaches screaming, but it doesn't last too long before the climax is reached. If you listen closely, you can hear a sound buried in the mix that sounds a lot like some keyboard effects, but there is no keyboard credited here, so it could be a guitar sound, but it's hard to place it because it is in the mix quite deeply. After the climax, there is an explosive sound that reverberates as the tone calms and the formula works backwards. There are some nice sounds as the tone cools down and some reverse guitar sounds come through. It works well as a transition to the next track.

"Armslength" is the shortest track at over 7 minutes and starts out acoustic immediately with some nice vocals. The vocals don't become extreme in this track and the acoustic builds to some extent, but it mostly stays mellow and nice. It's interesting that there are some tinkling sounds in there that are bells or chimes of some kind, again not credited. The last track "Lights and Shapes" works more off of ebbs and flows, softs and louds, with a nice use of dynamics which is rare in post rock. I swear though that there is a string sound in there and it is even more obvious this time. Whatever it is, whether it's a bowed guitar (which I doubt), it is a very nice touch. I'm sure it's the same sound as before, but much more obvious. This last track in my opinion is the best because of the varied use of dynamics.

Overall, this is a nice sampling of their music. 4 tracks at over 35 minutes is just the right dose of this music. I really enjoy the sound even despite the vocals, but it would be hard to sustain the sound for a full album and keep it interesting without some more variation. I would rate this at 4 stars as it is, even with the shortness of the E.P. because I think it's more effective in it's smaller format. I don't know how well the albums have worked for them unfortunately because this is the only recording that I have heard. But it is well done and merits some more exploration. I guess that makes this a great entrance into their discography, which is currently not very large.
