Album:Made the Harbor
If you like folk music with intricate harmonies, you may like the female trio Mountain Man. The 2010 album Made the Harbor was critically acclaimed but obviously it's not commercial music. Mountain Man are from Bennington, VT. Molly Sarle, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig and Amelia Meath met at Bennington College and started singing together. After self releasing a 2009 album, they signed with Partisan Records for the 2010 album Made the Harbor. Though the album was critically acclaimed, Mountain Man decided to disband. They went on tour with Feist as backup singers. Alexandra and Amelia worked with Nick Sanborn of the electropop act Sylvan Esso. Eventually Feist convinced Mountain Man to reform and they released the 2018 album Magic Ship on Warner's Nonesuch label. Also, Molly released the 2019 album Karaoke Angel. Amanda released the 2019 album Dawnbreaker as Daughter of Swords. Amelia continues to record with Sylvan Esso. They released an album in 2020. Made the Harbor is recommended to folk music fans and it is available as a budget CD. Here's Mountain Man performing River at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, NY Nov. 11, 2010.
