Mountain Man

Vermont's Mountain Man (three ladies, no less) is making all sorts of waves, and their appearance at next months SXSW should catapult them further. Why not? This is goosebump music: timeless, sounding like Carter Family demos, with minimal instrumentation except the ladies' weird three part harmonies. You can download their debut over at their website (a Radiohead-inspired tip jar is set up for compensation). Highly recommended; and in the meantime, here's Mountain Man performing "Mouthwings" in a tunnel on Hawk Hill, San Francisco, courtesy of videographers Yours Truly. This is a time machine.
