Molly Sarlé is one-third of the folk trio Mountain Man, but she steps into the spotlight on her first solo album, Karaoke Angel. Across its 10 tracks, she explores sexuality, vulnerability, self-determination, and the cathartic power of karaoke. She recorded the album with Sam Evian, who also produced the record, in Woodstock, New York.

Mountain Man are a very special band because not only are Molly Sarlé, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig and Amelia Meath great as a group, but they’re also all creators of other accomplished projects. Meath is one-half of synth-pop duo Sylvan Esso, Sauser-Monnig makes thoughtful folk music under the alias Daughter of Swords, and Sarlé writes stunning, roomy songs under her own name. Sarlé’s new album Karaoke Angel was written and recorded over the span of three years and as many places, from a trailer in Big Sur to home in North Carolina to a studio in Woodstock, N.Y.

The debut solo album from Sarlé (1/3 of Mountain Man) is finally here! Karaoke Angel is a cathartic intimate record with melodies that will stick in your head for days. Sarlé explores heavy topics like addiction, suicide, and sexuality with touches of humor and droves of empathy.

“Twisted” is from Molly Sarlé’s new album, Karaoke Angel, out 9.20.19 on Partisan Records.
