about

Big Mountain County are back for more with a second helping of sweaty, psychsexrock on their latest offering, “Somewhere Else”. This adored, Rome-based, four piece band took a year out from their gruelling touring ways in order to dig deep composing their new material. For these boys, it’s been all about solid live performance and psych rock from the get-go. In just a few years the band has earned international acclaim for their European tours and participation in festivals: at Binic they were invited to perform two years in a row and at Rome Psych Fest, the press unanimously declared them “best live band 2016”. As a consequence they sold out of first press vinyls and Gas Vintage Records (their label at the time) had to put a rush on a second pressing of their first album “Breaking Sound". 2016 saw them embark on an intensive tour schedule and as a testament to the strength of their stunning performances, Area Pirate Records released the live album “Anachronicles”. The past year has seen them focusing their energies on writing and recording their sophomore studio album. Enlisting the creative ears and deft hands of production duo Paola Mirabella (Honeybird and the birdies) and Andrea Pulcini (Persian Pelican) they were able to fine-tune their approach to the recording process. We’re talking killer riffs side-by-side with soaring vocals and synths that colour midnight melodies. The songs range from personal narratives to journeys down an existential abyss - all of them carried by heart-felt grooves. From “Contèz” which blazes like the Mediterranean sun, to “Lost Summer” which transports us across a sleeping desert and “Dust” along with the title track “Somewhere Else” which both evoke strange and trippy atmospheres. Listening to "Just a Boy" and "Dancing Beam" you will realize this is a record made for moving both the heart and the hips. BMC are your gypsy guides and if you close your eyes when you listen, it’s just possible that the next time you lift your gaze, you really will be somewhere else.

Track Name: Dust
There are only bombs today, beneath an orange sky
wind rustling slow through the trees
The guardian says: “it’s too early, wait and see, as time goes by
Keep awake, you’ll know what to do.
That’s it!”

Dusty roads, someone screaming,
you look for a place to hide
Run to the top of the hill!

Don’t try to remember
Don’t try to feel emotions
There's nothing to regret
Keep me away from here!

You learned to be what everybody wants you to be
No way, too much noise, I can’t hear your voice!

Don’t try to remember
Don’t try to feel emotions
There's nothing to regret
Keep me away from here!
Track Name: Somewhere else
Feelings of the good times, don’t want ‘em anymore
A river in the jungle, I can’t go home
We were singing all the old songs, now I can’t recall
Pictures of him, can’t get enough

Alone in his death place, another day is done
I’m waiting on the sun for no one to come
As far as I can dream to sit here and die
if only this sinking boat could rise up and fly

He dressed so well
and spoke so well
Memories of that smile, long long ago
No longer sure I’ve been here before

He understands
this makes no sense
He understands
I won’t stay there

Maybe it could be better with someone else
Wish I could want to be somewhere else
Wish the rain would wash away a need to hope and stay
When the sun comes to find me I’ll be far away
Track Name: Yellow morning
Yellow morning, a voice is calling
What a crazy crowd!
Junkies, zombies, snakes and monkeys
They’re all around

All day long
All night long

The door is open, the frog is broken
Smell of her perfume
Fortune teller, would you read my life?
I know you'll be a liar

I don’t mind
And you don’t talk

Hey, don’t bring me down
Please don’t let me down

Yellow morning, no one’s talking
Just a carillon
Try to walk, try to run
Don’t know what to do

All alone
You are gone
All alone
All day long

Hey, don’t bring me down
Please don’t let me down
Hey, don’t bring me down
Please don’t let me down

All alone
You are gone
All alone
You are gone
All alone
You are gone
All alone
You are gone
Track Name: Dancing beam
Princess, get up!
morning glory has begun
everyone wants you
c'mon DJ

When you start a new life
when you leave yourself alone
your people, your place, your happiness,
your fighting

Too many lies, eat you alive
counts up to 10
do what I’m paying you for
C’mon damned!

I wanna dance all night, playing with your smile
I wanna find the best side of you
Cause I’m feeling fine
Don’t get me wrong! Don’t get me wrong!

I look at you, you touch me
cause I’m an asshole, asshole!
look at the mirror baby
you see an asshole, asshole!

Too many people
not enough confusion
too many lazy men
too many hot women

Breathe, drink
this is what we do with stress
do not waste the time, it's late, c’mon

We are all involved.
We are not afraid.
We are stoned, it’s done.
Do not worry about tomorrow.
C’mon damned!

I wanna dance all night, playing with your smile
I wanna find the best side of you
Cause I’m feeling fine

I wanna dance all night, playing with your smile
I wanna find the best side of you
Cause I’m feeling fine
Don’t get me wrong! Don’t get me wrong!
Track Name: Just a boy
Hey boys, hey girls
It’s time to freak out
Like a wolf in the moonlight
Drink blood and fight for your rights.

Kill your modern screen
It’s nothing more than a stupid machine.
Time flows, It flows fast
And you stay behind

Living is better, now or never
I’m just a boy, just a boy
Living is better, now or never

Hey dude, open your eyes!
Your life is kind of hell
Bloody hell and blackout
It’s time to freak out!

You follow yourself
My stupid elf
Like a wolf in the moonlight
Drink blood and fight for your rights

Living is better, now or never
I’m just a boy, just a boy
Living is better, now or never
I’m just a boy, just a boy
Living is better, now or never
Track Name: Just the same
Drink all the wine, smile at the night
Poets are gone, they don’t pay the rent
Wasting some time, she was so nice
Dreamin’ is easier if you don’t look back

Shaking these dice, brushing a knife
Now it’s the time, go to Mexico!
Staring at the phone, willing to ring
Or calling your mummy for the very first time

So go, so go and leave, or stay
Or you, or you can wait and see
So go, so go and leave, or stay
Or you, or you can wait and….

Every time we say goodbye, it’s good to think about a brand new day
I’d like!
Every time we say goodbye, it’s good to think about a brand new day
I’m sure!

Reading some books, fuckin’ your friend
Summer is done, and you don’t understand
Droppin’ a line, nothing seems strange
It is so light when you don’t have to change

All that you want, all that you need
All of your desires, all of your dreams
All of the times I was waiting for you
Now It’s all over and you know that it’s true

So go, so go and leave, or stay
Or you, or you can wait and see
So go, so go and leave, or stay
Or you, or you can wait and see

So go, so go and leave, or stay
Or you or you can wait and see
So go so go and leave, or stay
For me, for me it’s just the same
Track Name: Contéz
Hero in my songs
Beautiful and very strong
Powerful and rich, before
King of a candy store

I lived in Downtown
Homeless in Chinatown
Everyone greeted me,
Cause I was born on the southern sea, the southern sea, the southern sea

I bring with me, my sweet madness,
my desire to invent, create and destroy
I bring with me, your desire to live
to love, to trust this world

I was a famous singer
Showing the middle finger
Dream, lover space, lover music, lover spicy, lover

Do not complain, react!
Take the direction of your heart
It’s time to loud and start to play
Exotic light leads you to the right way

I bring with me, my sweet madness,
my desire to invent, create and destroy
I bring with me, your desire to live,
to love, to feed my soul

I bring with me, my sweet madness,
my desire to invent, create and destroy.
I bring with me, your desire to live
to love, to trust this world
Track Name: Tonite
First of December
another broken dream
I see the lights are sparkling
some people hangin' around

I know I know I know
You're gonna miss me, dear

I have so many friends
but I can't see your smile
maybe It's only a nightmare
Maybe it’s cause I’m sick

Tonite!
Bring me just a little memory
Tonite, tonite!
Cause I have no fear anymore

You are the best thing that's happened to me
You are so dear, so sweet, so cute
You know how much I love you!
Gimme one more chance
Gimme one more chance

Tonite!
Bring me just a little memory
Tonite, tonite!
Cause I have no fear anymore

You’ll miss me honey
You’ll miss me honey
You’ll miss me honey
You’ll miss me honey

I want you back, baby!

Tonite!
Bring me just a little memory
Tonite, tonite!
Cause I have no fear anymore

Tonite, tonite!
Tonite, tonite!
Cause I have no fear anymore
Track Name: Don't feel like
Since I was a young boy
I hate fast cars and discotheques
I see a lot of guys and girls
only care ‘bout stupid things, shit!
I don't feel like
I don't feel like
I don't feel like them

I wanna to stay at home
Ride my bike all the time
Play some ol’ tunes on the radio

I don’t want to know what’s wrong
I don’t want to hear this song
I don't feel like
I don't feel like
I don't feel like you

I don't feel like, I don't feel like you
I don't feel like, I don't feel like you
I don't feel like, I don't feel like you

People talking over there
thinking I don’t understand
She smiles so sweetly, she’s fine

I don’t want to know what’s wrong
I don’t want to hear this song
I don’t want to spend my life with you

There's nothing more to say
It's impossible to explain
How skateboarding takes me away

I don't feel like, I don't feel like you
I don't feel like, I don't feel like you
I don't feel like, I don't feel like you
Track Name: Far away
Roses, Jesus! I wanna be away
Everything is dark and grey
Dreamers, screamers they think I’m liar:
“Hey boy, why don’t you die?”

Now it seems that he’s forgetting you
Now the boat is flowing without you

The painter is waiting for his world to collapse
Considering his life a total lapse
The princess is crying alone in her room
praying that a new morning doesn’t come

And people say he’s coming back to you
People think He’s stoppin’ hangin around
Looking for the things that you used to do
So You know it hurts, but you don’t…

…one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight!

“beauty, sadness, you don’t wanna stay here
The love that you taste, to test all of your fears”
Then she said: “I have an idea”

“I adore the sound of the trees in March
Let me take you there, please trust me”

And I don’t look back, and I can’t go on,
then I try to sleep, but I can’t
And I know the bell is tolling for me

And people say he’s coming back to you
People think he’s stoppin’ hanging around
Looking for the things that you used to do
So You know it hurts, but you don’t mind

And people say he’s coming back to you
People think he’s stoppin’ hanging around
Looking for the things that you used to do
So You know it hurts, but you don’t mind
Track Name: Lost summer
We went down from the Ocean Sunday afternoon
Driving miles‘n’miles through a silent no man’s land
At the gas station wind was killin’ things that were already dead
Only some lost shadow in the summer’s depth of field

Rollin...

Echoes of love songs, I was a long way from my home
Such a stupid stranger in a big land far away
All the years I wasted to become a better man
They’ll never give me your eyes or any place to stay

Hey, you! There’s nothing right or wrong
Don’t you call my name, It’s too late, I’m gone
As long as you are in my dreams,
I know that you’re not here tonight

What a mind journey! Drag me away
Hills are burnin’, even at night
Oh, nothing changin’, and I’m gettin’old
City is bleeding, and I’m gettin’ dumb

Hey, you! There’s nothing right or wrong
Don’t you call my name, It’s too late, I’m gone
As long as you are in my dreams,
know that you’re not here tonight
