Mountain Man stopped by NPR’s Tiny Desk to perform three delicate songs from their latest LP, Magic Ship.
Trading turns on lead vocals on each successive song, the Bennington, Vt.-based trio kicked off their set with the layered harmonies of Appalachian folk song “Rang Tang Ring Toon,” the lead single off their 2018 sophomore album.
“Beans boil in the pot/I’m dancin’ from room to room/The sun is setting and the air is hot/Rang tang ring toon,” the ladies sang over Alexandra Sauser-Monnig’s gentle plucking.
Next, Molly Erin Sarlé took over acoustic guitar duties on the dreamy lilting “Moon” before Amelia Meath finished things off with the brief, a capella storytelling of “Stella,” which clocks in at a mere 1:53 in total.
