  • The Sound of the Mountain plays Round 5 of the Showcase, Thursday at Stickyz.

Russellville quartet The Sound of the Mountain has the whole instrumental post-rock/shoegaze thing down — the atmospherics, the off-kilter rhythms, the circular guitar lines, the slow-burn dynamics building toward a squall of guitar, all of it.

All of that is to say, fans of Mogwai, Tarantel, Explosions in the Sky and the like should not skip this band.

Check out the band's "Confessions of an English Opium Eater."
