VOTD: Mountain Man climbs Pitchfork

Not actually mountain men.

Listening to female minimalist vocal trio Mountain Man is more than a little awe-inspiring. Their a cappella harmonizing layers and interweaves upon itself, knitting an old-fashioned sonic patchwork.

Actually watching them perform, however, compares to looking up at a family of well-trained acrobats at the circus, back-flipping off tightropes, tossing and catching each other while the trapeze zooms around the tent.

And they’re kinda cute, sweaty hipster chicks, so that’s nice, too. Here’s “Holy Father,” performed impromptu in a tunnel at this year’s Newport Folk Festival.

Matt Stansberry & the Romance — Let’s Brighten It Up


Pop

Joshua Boydston
The cover of the seven-song EP Let’s Brighten It Up is a telling one. Oklahoma City’s Matt Stansberry is midbounce, dressed in a tailored suit and black-rimmed glasses à la Elvis Costello or Buddy Holly, clutching what looks like a bright-red Les Paul guitar. Stansberry is true to form, as polished and accomplished as ever, and his new band, The Romance, adds a little pep to his step.

One in Three

Oklahoma City’s Nathan Mickle makes up a third of the new vocal group The American Three, dedicated to belting out standards.


Music

Louis Fowler
Press materials for The American Three tag the new vocal group as “fun and wholesome,” with a little Rat Pack thrown in “just for flavor!” It’s that extra flavor that Three member and lifelong Ol’ Blue Eyes fan Nathan Mickle believes fits his song stylings to a T.
