Mountain Man

Mountain Man‘s anticipated first album in eight years, Magic Ship, came in September via Nonesuch Records, . As the singles hinted, there’s some acappella stuff, some folky type stuff, and the whole thing is totally worth hearing. Mountain Man have also been touring, including a free record release show/signing at Rough Trade NYC on September 24th.

The highly anticipated follow-up to Made the Harbor doesn’t disappoint. On their magnificent new album for Nonesuch Records, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, Amelia Meath, and Molly Sarle draw textured, hair-raising harmonies from a bountiful well of originals and covers, sung both with instrumentation and A Capella. There is a transportive quality to their voices and to these recordings. As soon the sisters start, the listener is carried to the back porch of a small farmhouse at the end of a dirt road, or to the top of a knoll as the fog lifts at daybreak. Magic that could have been tracked by Ferris or Lomax. The perfect tonic for these chaotic times.

Mountain Man member Amelia Meath also has upcoming dates with her band Sylvan Esso.

‘Magic Ship’ is the new album from Mountain Man, out 21st September via Bella Union.

It’s been eight years since Mountain Man’s excellent debut Made The Harbor. Today, the Vermont trio — comprising Amelia Meath of Sylvan Esso, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé — announce the forthcoming follow-up album, Magic Ship, along with three new songs.

The album’s opening track “Window” is 55 seconds of bare-bones, solo a cappella. “Rang Tang Ring Toon” is like a lilting campfire song. “Stella” is rich in its simplicity. “We all have this secret access to each other’s feelings, whether or not we’re singing. That is what creates the alchemy when we are singing together,” Sarlé says in a statement.
