A big, booming, potent EP, Dragon Mouth from Dust Mouth is an art-rock dream come true, combining the rivers-of-guitar sound popularized by bands like Deftones with sweeping, orchestral keys and the aching, insistent vocals of Irene Barber. This kind of drama is in the band’s CV: comprised of members of These Arms Are Snakes, Minus The Bear, Undertow, Aeges and XVIII Individual Eyes, Dust Moth fuses the intensity of those bands into something denser and oddly dreamlike. “Months” slams and hammers, Barber’s voice gliding over endlessly-thundering guitars. Album-closing “Redbone” is lush and mysterious, a strange shadow on a dark horizon. The album arrives courtesy of the Mylene Sheath, whose track record with this kind of grand, stately music is unparalleled.
