AHE-06 ROPE - Montagne b/w I Can’t Pretend to Understand - 7”: $5
“Montagne” is the recording debut of the Brooklyn band Rope. It began as a one man band studio project by Josh Clark, but has recently turned into a fully operational machine. Playing no-holds-barred rock, somewhere between the slow-burn chug of Crazy Horse and the power pop metal of Thin Lizzy. Rope favors all things guitar. With guitarists John Stendrini (Federale) and Zach Cale (Illuminations) flanking Josh, a natural chorus effect materializes between the guitars supplying the band with a sonic palette for constructing mammoth sounding riffs. Featuring the full speed ahead rocker "Montagne" on the A side and a four chord barn-stormer on the flip. This is the first in a series of 7" singles.

Rope

Rope was a rock band founded by Seaside Lounge Recording Studio co-owner Josh Clark from 2008 - 2011. During it's brief life span the group saw a few shifts in personnel, including such illustrious axe wielders as Patrick McCarthy (The Zig Zags), John Stendrini (Federale, Great War), and Zachary Cale (Illuminations). Sporting big amps and three guitars, and with a focus on two chord burners and shout along choruses Rope took it's cues from dusted and blazing 70's rock bands like Crazy Horse and Thin Lizzy, as well as a number of bands that Josh was producing at Seaside Lounge; namely rock veterans Antietam. The band released one single before disbanding: the Montagne 7" is a scorcher of a single showcasing tuneful melodies over monumental riffs.
