What happens when I find a new Mountain Man song I haven’t heard before? Why, I post it up here straight away, silly! I always do that!
‘Bath Tub’ apparently existed prior to the group’s first album, recorded live in a barn. The outliers of Mountain Man’s oeuvre seem far more expressionistic – where the tracks on Made the Harbor resonate with simple melodies and beautiful execution, singular tracks like this and the wonderful ‘Vision’ seem more concerned with portraying mood rather than story. But why am I pontificating over any of this anyway? I love it all.
You lot are screwed when the next album comes out.
