@LEGUESSWHO tips by Stephen McBean @_blackmountain_ - Black Breath, SWANS, Truman's Water

We have asked our favorite promoters, festivals and bands to tip their three recommendations from this year's Le Guess Who? festival line-up. This edition: singer and guitarist Stephen McBean, frontman of Black Mountain and Pink Mountaintops.

Black Breath (Sat 27 Nov)
This band slayed me at the Riff Fest in Los Angeles. Metal just the way I love it – some crushing and crusty Swedish style riffs, a touch of Schuldiner and Warrior, and some good ol’ Discharge heart and soul

SWANS (Wed 24 Nov)
It’s the Swans, duh? It’s a very deep well.

Truman's Water (Fri 26 Nov)
I didn’t know they were still around. Doing the Jehu/ Youth/ Beefheart noise freakouts before people enjoyed getting quirky.

Tomorrow: Le Guess Who? tips by Dan Seligman, co-creator and creative director of Montreal's annual music festival Pop Montreal.
