The beautiful soft sounds of a Mountain Man…

On 29 September, 2010 by slowcoustic

I have just finally started listening to Mountain Men and they are probably exactly opposite of what this all girl trio’s band name would lead you to believe.  Not quite a burly, plaid wearing, axe wielding grunt of a man, but three young women with incredible vocals.

Now that I think of it, the sound could be (and often has been) described as some sort of Appalachian harmony, so maybe the whole Mountain Man thing is more of a play on words…which now that I actually type it out, might make the most sense…

Overall these three lovely voices (Molly Erin Sarle, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, Amelia Randall Meath) come across as a folk style “a cappella” group that just happened to have a guitar handy at the time of recording some of the songs.  There are a lot of harmonies, minimal sound scapes that really focus on the vocals and the beauty within it.  On the album there are numerous examples of the three singing and honestly you don’t always notice that there is no backing music until you actually think about it – their voices become the music itself.  Check it out if you got the time, and if you don’t…try harder.
