Five and Alive: Waves
Five and Alive: Waves
05/07/11 at 08:07 AM by Adam Pfleider
This week, Gregory Dunn of Moving Mountains talks about five albums that influenced the band's upcoming record, Waves.

============
Cave In's Jupiter - Aside from being one of my all time favorite bands, Cave In has always had an influence on Moving Mountains in some way or another. There were times in the studio when Frank and I were writing/tracking guitars and would both refer to riffs/ideas as “Cave In” parts. Kinda funny looking back at it now. Also, on a more personal note, singer Stephen Brodsky is definitely a dude I aspire towards vocally. I think a lot of the heavier vocal parts showcased on Waves is a product of listening to older records from these guys. Sonically, this record was big for me.

I wonder if he listened to Mychildren Mybride's newest album, that was the last record Goldman put out I believe.

My AP feature just became a little more repetitive. Damn internet.

I think the first pick essentially spells out the Thrice similarities.

"Oceana's Clean Head EP - This record came out of nowhere for me, and it was fantastic. This is the type of record that makes me confused as a songwriter. I’ve listened to it so many times and thought to myself “How do they write this?”. It’s so tastefully complex, and the vocal melodies are so perfect. This was also another Matt Goldman product (which is how I found it), and I think it showcases his strong points as a producer. Capturing the raw, real nature of a band. I think I can speak for the other guys in saying this album was played heavily listened by all of us, and really got stuck in our heads while writing vocal parts, and guitar work."

THIS!!! Why can't more people see this album in this light! I am in awe every time I hear it! It seems effortless yet so complex.

Know it all, hahaha jk! Yea he did write that, but you can tell the album's Goldman "cares" about and puts his own thoughts and talent into it. When I think of Goldman, I think of Oceana, The Chariot, underOath, As Cities Burn, and Copeland. He shaped those albums so well and put a lot of heart into those!

Albums like MCMB, Four Letter Lie, he does it for the money haha!

I respectfully disagree -- I know that Goldman worked MCMB and FLL really hard on both "Lost Boy and "A New Day" respectfully.

The Chariot slays though, i'd definitely say that Josh Scogin has been one of my favorite interviews that i've done, he's hilarious.

How so? I am just curious, not trying to start a fight. I feel like the production he did on albums like Cleanhead or Come Now Sleep pay much more attention to particulars over Lost Boy or any FLL album.
