Here’s a little something from Somerville-based Mount Peru, an upbeat alt-country affair with a little psychedelia mixed in for nice effect. Comprising guitars, pedal steel, piano, trumpet, tenor sax, percussion and delicious rootsy harmonies, it’s a friendly and engaging, feel-good sound. Their debut, “My Sweetheart the Destroyer,” was released early in 2011, gathering praise and fans and leading to touring throughout the East Coast and Midwest. Their EP, “Your Kingdom’s Come Undone,” followed in the spring of 2012, with a residency at the newly opened Davis Square Theatre. Regrouping with a new rhythm section and recording new songs, they released “Is This Thing On?” back in the spring of this year.
Catch them at Davis Square Theatre on Saturday night (9/14) as part of “Crash Safely: Benefit for the National MS Society” and enjoy/purchase their fine music on bandcamp (or get it from Amazon.com).
