A band whose well weathered members have racked up years of due payment gigging with the likes of Sebadoh, Earlimart, Great Northern, and The Watson Twins, Everest came a calling for a fleet of performances over the course of CMJ 2010. They would assemble before a late night, boozed up audience at The Mercury Lounge; their tried and true, three guitar stab at the fundamentals of American Rock and Roll reminiscent of an early encounter with the likes of My Morning Jacket (Whom, by the way, they would take the stage in support of two days later at Terminal 5) or Band of Horses.

In addition to those performances, we were lucky enough to nab the band for a tempered down acoustic performance during our Rockwood Sessions. Showcasing a pair of songs from their Neil Young endorsed album On Approach ("Let Go" and "Tall Buildings"), as well as one from their debut Ghost Notes ("Rebels In The Roses"), the band would conjure rustic images of long lost, Laurel Canyon kind of days. Though a bit more hushed in the Rockwood environment, the band's rhythmic foundation flared through, thanks in part to the synchronous might of drummer Davey Latter and bassist Eli Thomson.

We would also share some conversation with leading man Russell Pollard and guitarist Joel Graves; the two opening up about the beautiful noise they make together and some of the inspirations that drive their music along. What follows is a personal look at a band that lead us to warn their manager, "I think you have a monster on your hands". We think you'll agree. True to Everest's name, expect massive things from this impressive LA outfit. - David Pitz
