Burnside Album Details

Loch Lomond, When We Were Mountains

Little did Ritchie Young know that when he went to record some quick demos with his friend Rob Oberdorfer (The Standard) that he was beginning a year-long collaborative process which would end with a full length record for Loch Lomond and with him as the newest member of The Standard. "When We Were Mountains" is a document of that process. Each song on this album evolved in it's own unorthodox production techniques and an ever-changing assortment of instruments. Several of the songs were built from the sonic scraps of older ones where parts were removed from their original context to create something entirely different. Ritchie and Rob crafted this postmodern patchwork into a sound all their own, held together by the unique melodic and lyrical vision which flows through the album.
