Web Extra: Mountain Man interview


Mountain Man are a critically adored trio comprised of Amelia Meath (of Sylvan Esso), Molly Erin Sarlé, and Alexandra Sauser-Monnig. Magic Ship is the trio’s first new album in 8 years. Following their debut album’s 2010 release and subsequent tours, the band went on hiatus to work on other music, which included Amelia founding Sylvan Esso with her husband, Nick.
The band will be embarking on their first headlining tour in over 6 years.  Previously they have played with Feist, Jonsi, The Decemberists, Fleet Foxes, Tune Yards, Bon Iver and others.

Cindy Howes spoke with the members of Mountain Man to discuss their unearthly harmonies, their beginings and how they came back to music as a band and friends.
