The Modern Folk - American Mountain
Josh Moss, the DIYer behind The Modern Folk project released the follow up to last years American Cave, entitled American Mountain, which I'm guessing is the secret location of the cave. On this release Josh continues to play a plethora of intruments, guitars, bass, banjo, mandolin, melodica, drums, vocals but is accompanied by Bre Taylor on vocals and Kate Dwyer on fiddle adding a element of fun and spontaneity perfect for Josh's interpretation of traditional Folk songs, hence the name 'Modern Folk' the album features three originals, The Holler, The Mountain and Nightmares show an ability to push boundaries while retaining the essence of Appalachian folk tales. There's a unique freshness here that's hard to pinpoint but you can feel it as much as hear it.
Josh is also a fellow blogger highlighting the many DIYers pursuing their passions on a shoe string and with any means at their disposal who deserve to be heard.
