Listen to Mountain Man. 

Described by The New York Times as a “love letter to the folk traditions of Appalachia,” Mountain Man returns after an eight-year hiatus. For fans of the folk trio and their effortless harmonies, their new album Magic Ship—a magnetic fourteen-song reflection on the joys, follies, and oddities of existence—is well worth the wait.

Formed in 2009 when Amelia Meath (also of electronic pop duo Sylvan Esso), Molly Erin Sarlé, and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig met by chance on a college campus, Mountain Man quickly found critical acclaim with their debut album, Made the Harbor, recorded on rickety equipment in an abandoned factory. With Magic Ship, new songs distill eight years of experience between that first record and now—of sights seen, pleasures had, feelings hurt, and forgiveness extended. The new album conveys absolute warmth, like a snowbound afternoon spent indoors, or a long summer evening spent lounging beneath a shady tree, swapping stories and sharing laughs until the sun has vanished.
