I'm really enjoying the sparse, ethereal folk of Vermont trio Mountain Man - ironically all women - at the moment. Their songs remind me very much of Moon Pix-era Cat Power (i.e. when Chan Marshall was really on top of her game). Have a listen to this live version of the rather wonderful Dog Song, recorded for the estimable Swedish site PSL, and see what you think.
If you like what you hear - and why wouldn't you? - head over to the band's website for two free downloads from their new album Made The Harbor. That's also the place to order the album on CD or limited edition coloured vinyl. Oh, and if you simply can't wait it can also be purchased as a digital download.
