As the band's name tells you, ​MATTERHORN​ has a passion for climbing heights – both musically, with an alternately soaring and stargazing sound, and literally, drawing inspiration from trumpeter-leader John Blevins' backpacking exploits in Yosemite National Park's Matterhorn Canyon.

Matterhorn's new album ​Uzumati​, a follow-up to its acclaimed, Shane Endsley-produced debut, will be released on October 12, 2018, on ​ears&eyes Records​. With their exuberant jazz harmonies, indie rock touches, Balkan feels and reggae grooves, Blevins and company create an intriguing aural landscape to reflect on mighty Yosemite.

"Our lives are so fleeting--there's a timeline in the mountains of which we really have no conception," said Blevins. "On ​Uzumati​ [a Native American term for grizzly bear], we tried to capture some of that feeling."
