Mountain Man

I’m an enormous music nerd. There’s no two ways about it. One of my perennially favourite artists is Leslie Feist, and I’ve been looking forward to her latest album Metals for a while. When looking for some live performances of her new stuff online, I found this video with her performing a new single on Letterman. Check it out below:

Aside from her usual bad-assery, I was blown away by her backup singers. It turns out that they’re a band in their own right called Mountain Man, and quite a good one at that. Their Andrews Sisters meets Appalachian Woodsman vibe is quite in tune with loads of folk-inspired interiors and products around at the moment. And they’re just pretty darn great. I think this kind of deep folk will only become more important, as the kind of Bon Iver, woodsman trend moves more into the mainstream. So go check out their Bandcamp page, and just enjoy.
