Using a 2 track loop pedal, one bass, one microphone, a free app, and a few guitars, Microwave Mountain's Shades Up was recorded in Jamie's East Nashville room. All songs were mixed and recorded being played out of two old guitar amplifiers.
Sick Licks was released in 2018 via Coldlunch Recordings.
"Take a pinch of T. Rex’s Electric Warrior, add one helping of Beck’s Odelay and a little dash of Ween’s GodWeenSatan: The Oneness, and you’ve got an idea of what Microwave Mountain has going on their eight-song EP Sick Licks, released in April via local label Cold Lunch Recordings. Frontman Jamie Timm supplies ample quantities of said licks from his fuzz-coated guitar, as he grooves along on some funky beats and holds forth in his nasal croon on subjects like dancing (“Electric Boogie”), conflict resolution (“What’s the Beef?”) and video cassettes that someone borrowed and hasn’t given back (“VHS”). -Nashville Scene
