We posted about the release of Mountain Man’s debut album Made The Harbor way back in July but it has taken some time and a lot of listening to be included in my top 5 albums of the year. Mountain Man is not the kind of band that most people will instantly fall in love with. Their music is full of intricacies and subtle nuances that most listeners will surely miss their first time through. What is probably most charming about Mountain Man is that they harken back to the days of the Andrew’s Sisters, the Mill’s Brothers* and other vocal groups of the early 20th century.
*Fun Fact! The song “How’m I Doin’ Hey-Hey” was originally recorded by the Mills Brothers in the 1930’s.
