So I’m certain that (almost) none of you have heard of Mountain Man yet, but they’re great and they’re coming to town soon. So, if you’re in a quiet, calm place, and ready to hear some pretty-ass shit, click on the mp3s below. Joanna Newsom and Fleet Foxes are the first influences that pop into my head, but one could probably find more accurate comparisons. Some of you may remember one Mountain Man member, Amelia Meath, as Annelies in the Ribbons of War musical. Anyways, if you dig, they’ll be playing at The Garage on Sunday, June 21st.
Likewise, you probably haven’t heard Emperor X. He’s a genius — one of the coolest underground lo-fi recording geeks out there — and he’s playing at The Bridge on Monday, June 22nd. Personally, I’ll admit, his songs often don’t click for me on the first listen, but eventually they always do and are very rewarding.
