A reductive take on Vancouver quintet Black Mountain is that they split the difference between the folk of Pentangle and the metal of Pentagram. Impossible as that may sound, it’s not that far off the mark, as Amber Webber’s mellifluous vibrato anchors their flights of prog-rock fancy. Webber trades vocals with guitarist Stephen McBean, a solid singer in the David Gilmour vein, but she’s the band’s secret weapon, much like Rabia Shaheen Qazi was for the late Rose Windows. On their fourth full-length, the Randall Dunn–produced IV, Black Mountain segue with grace from the gentle ballad “Line Them All Up” to the slow-burn freak-out “(Over and Over) The Chain,” but there are unexpected detours along the way, like “Constellations,” a surprisingly successful attempt at Romeo Void–style noir-pop.
