Bottlecap Mountain was hatched in an egg behind its daddy's PA and took its gentle infant naps on the pillow of the kick drum. Its innate abilities are brandished in a performance that is at once familiar and mysteriously difficult to place. The lyrics are like a shoelace pulling the truth together weaving out to the edge of abstraction before gently settling you in. When it kicks it kicks the door in and when it slows down it makes you wish you were heartbroken.
Biography Formed in AUSTIN TEXAS, Bottlecap Mountain has been playing gigs and making records for several years. The group features sensational-singer-songwriter Stewart Gersmann, melodic bass-case Chris Stangland, keyboard lord-ess Yvonne Love & "Lucky" Bruce Earl on guitar. Yvonne & Bruce also sing.
