Black Mountain Tonight at Neurolux 

Last year, British Columbia's Stephen McBean brought his psychedelic folk project Pink Mountaintops a shinier, poppier, pinker side of his sound. McBean returns to Boise this week, but this time he's back in black--Black Mountain.

Black Mountain pushes past the pale and serves up psych rock that could easily have been born 40 years ago in the working-class suburbs of London. With its gospelly keyboards, thick guitar and relentless drums. Black Mountain's music mines the sounds of the '70s without sounding like a repetitive classic rock radio station. bn

Black Mountain's upcoming release Wilderness Heights (Jagjaguawar) is due out in mid-September and if you're afraid of sharks, get it from iTunes. On the album cover, a great white is coming out of the sky, seen in the reflection of a glass building. Pitchfork.com described it as "maybe the most badass cover art of the year." Whatever you do, don't turn around.

With Spin Drift, 9 p.m., $8 adv., $10 door. Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., neurolux.com.
