I’ll be honest—I hadn’t heard Mountain Man until about an hour ago. But, golly gee whiz, I do believe I have fallen in love! By listening to their latest album, Made the Harbor, for the past hour I feel like I’ve been transported from this rainy afternoon in a New York office building to a sunny summer afternoon on my grandma’s porch on the prairie. (Well, I guess she actually lives in the woods, but in this daydream it’s a prairie.) The ladies of this lovely trio have some of the most angelic voices I have ever heard, and their sweet melodies about things like rivers, loons, and honey bees will be the perfect soundtrack to all of your summer activities!
Check out "Play It Right" here and I dare you to not hum that tune for the rest of the day.
From the band: "We will be singing in your town soon and would love to say hello, eat some greens or meet your parents. Take us up on any or every invitation, but in the words of The Boss, 'Rosie, come out tonight!'"
