Mountain Man – “Around And Around” (John Denver Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)
Back in 2010, the Vermont trio Mountain Man released the lovely, harmony-coated folk album Made The Harbor, which brought serious levels of bucolic charm. (When I saw them at SXSW that year, they said it was the first time they’d performed with microphones.) Since then, the band put in serious time touring as Feist’s backup singers, and group member Amelia Meath formed the side project Sylvan Esso with Megafaun’s Nick Sanborn. And now, Mountain Man have given us their first new song in two years, a gorgeous cover of John Denver’s “Around And Around.” Listen to it below.
There hasn’t been any talk of a new Mountain Man album or anything, but I would not say no to one.
