Song of the Day: Mountain Man - Animal Tracks

The first thought that came to mind when I listened to Mountain Man for the first time was, "Oh, brother." As in O Brother, Where Art Thou? the fantastic Coen brothers movie and hugely successful soundtrack. The songs on Made the Harbor wouldn't be out of place on that soundtrack, and they remind me of the sirens of the movie. The album is mostly acoustic guitar and gorgeous three-part harmonies, and it's equally suited for intense listening via headphones or background dinner music. Either way, it's a beautiful album.
