Mountain Man's download-only first EP was a great hidden record many discovered last year thanks to the support of some blogs. It's been news lately that they've signed to Partisan Records and are soon to release their first proper LP (that will be released through Bella Union in the UK) that will contain the whole EP except Bathtub and seven new songs.
Mountain Man's music is to be catalogued together with new American folk tradition performers such as Alela Diane or Joanna Newsom. The combination of their voices with really minimal musical arrangements, sometimes guitar and sometimes even only accapella, make the compositions simple but overflowing and pure. Molly Erin Sarle, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig and Amelia Randall Meath, the three members behind Mountain Man, met are college (some of them are evn still studying) and starting singing without instruments on their rooms, planting the seeds of what has become this project and keeping this nudity of those first performances on their recordings.
