  • Overall, Carmel Mountain takes a slightly more melodic sound in general, though I will say that the vocals definitely pick up as the song progresses to give it a slightly more aggressive sound
  • Though not quite as good as the opening track on the record, I would still say that Carmel Mountain is strong at the very least and I think that it really allows the vocals a chance to shine, and they do not disappoint

      Carmel Mountain is a song by Sledding With Tigers and the second track on their third release, The Arrested Cats. Opening up with an interplay between a simple acoustic guitar patter and a violin lead, I must admit that this is a moment on the album which recalls a sound from the band’s release, but just sounds incredibly more

      developed and a far more mature sound.

      Although one could argue that the band abandoned their debut folk-punk sound, I certainly wouldn’t go to this extent.

      Granted, the songwriting has shifted in a more developed direction, but I still think that the band retains a sense of their sound and it doesn’t feel as if I’m listening to completely different bands.

      Something that I should mention about Carmel Mountain is that it actually doesn’t feature group vocals which is possibly one of the first times Sledding With Tigers didn’t include this tactic.

      Nevertheless, I find the lead vocal performance on this track to be excellent and only improves as the track progresses so I felt no need to ...

      at the very least and I think that it really allows the vocals a chance to shine, and they do not disappoint.

      Carmel Mountain makes another strong track for this record and if you wanted a sound which is similar to what the band had on their previous record, The Hill Sheep, must even more developed, Carmel Mountain is a good starting point.
