Mountain Man, 'Made the Harbor' (Partisan)

7
Made the Harbor
Critical Mass
Label: Partisan

by Jon Young

Formed at Vermont's Bennington College, this female trio play bare-bones folk, featuring lustrous harmonies adorned by occasional acoustic guitar. But Made the Harbor isn't particularly soothing or quaint. The quiet sizzle of "Soft Skin" is really an exploration of sexual violence, and on "Animal Tracks," they trill, "the bright baby eyes of a chickadee," in loony, eye-rolling fashion, peeling away any old-timey sheen to signify a creepy, untamed world. The snappy "How'm I Doin'" evokes primordial country, with a strain of belligerence in its chipper swagger.
